Luck chain letter. Death-Lottery type.  "Trust" title, "It Works" postscript. Handwritten, late generation. "Bolier Fairchild"   US, 1983.

Trust in the Lord with all good Faith and He will
acknowledge and He will light the way.

     This prayer has been sent to you for good Luck. The original copy is from the Netherlands. It has been around the world nine times. The luck has been brought to you. You will receive good luck within four days of receiving this letter, providing you, in turn, send it back out. This is not a joke. You will receive it in the mail. Send copies of this letter to people you think need good luck. Do not send money, for Faith has no price on it. Do not keep this letter. It must leave your hands within 96 hours after you receive it. An R.A.F. Officer received $70,000. Jon Elliott received $450,000 and lost it because he broke the chain. While in the Phillipines, General Welch lost his wife six days after he received the letter. He failed to circulate the prayer. Please send 20 copies and see what happens to you on the fourth day.

     This chain comes from Venezuela and was written by Saul Anthony de Coaif missionary from South America. I myself, forward it to you. Since the chain must make a tour of the world, you must make 20 copies identical to this one. Send it to your friends, parents and associates. After a few days you will receive a surprise. This is true even if you are not superstitious. Take note of the following:

Contantion Deia received the chain in 1953. He asked his secretary to make 20 [page break] copies identical to this one and send them. A few days later he received a lottery for $2,000,000 in his country.
Carlo Deith an office employee received the chain, he forgot it and a few days later he lost his job. He found the letter and sent it to 20 people. Four days later he got an even better job.
Bolier Fairchild received the chain and not believing in it, threw it away. Nine days later he died. For no reason whatsoever should this chain be broken.

Remember! Send no money. Please do not change this. It Works!
