A  B.S. Officer received $70,000.  Don Elliot received $160,000, but he lost it because he
broke the chain.  While in the Phillipines,  General Walsh lost his life six days after
he received this letter.  He failed to circulate the prayer.  However, before his death,
he received $775,000 which he won.

Please send 20 copies and then see what happens on the 4th day after.  Add your name to the
bottom of the list and leave the top name off when copying this letter.

This chain comes from Venezuela, was written by St. Aptine de Cade a missionary from South

Since the chain must make a tour of the world, you must make 20 copies identical to this one
and send it to your friends, parents, or acquaintances, and after a few days you will get
a surprise.  This is true, even if you are not superstitious.

Take note of the following:  Constantine Dies received the chain in 1953.  He asked his
secretary to make 20 copies and send them.  A few days later he won the lottery of $2
million in his country.

Carlos Brandt, an office employee, received the chain.  He forgot it and lost it.  A few
days later he lost his job.  He found the chain and sent it out to 20 people.  Nine days
later he got a better job.

Zorin Barrachilli received the chain.  Not believing it, he threw it away.  Nine days
 later he died.  For no reason whatsoever should this chain be broken.  In nine days
you will get a surprise.
