It must leave your hands 24 hours after you receive it.

This good luck prayer has been around the world four times by U.S. officers. Gen. Atkens received $17,000 three days after receiving it. Gen Patton received $8,000, and lost it after he broke the chain. Again, please do not send money, and don't keep this copy.
