Luck chain letter (English translation of published Polish).
Thirteen copies. Three husbands vanished. Poland, 1988.
Midnight [without beginning], this must go all over the world.
We ask you not to break the chain and to send one letter every day during
13 days, and after 13 days to wait for happiness for yourself. An Argentinean
tore this card to pieces and after 13 days lost his son. Another man granted
the chain's request and won 400 thousand zlotys. Someone hid the cards
and vanished in an accident. Send it without your address and wait
for your happiness.
Read an "Our Father" and an "Ave Maria," and pray to
Saint Anthony and he will console you and will not abandon you.
Three women did not send their chains and all their
husbands vanished in an accident.
From: Bogustaw Beduarek, Literatura Ludowa. 1988. no. 1, p.
