Dear Friend:

     This chain letter was started by a man like yourself in the
hope of bringing relief and happiness to tired men.

     Unlike most chain letters this does not cost any money,
simply send a copy of this letter to five of your men friends who
are equally tired then bundle your wife up and send her to the
man whose name is at the top of the list and add your own
name to the bottom of it.

     When your name comes to the top of the list, you will
receive 16478 women and some of them will be dandies.

     Have faith, don't break the chain.   One man broke the chain
and got his old woman back.

                                       Sincerely yours,

PS At the date of this writing, a friend of mine received
183 women, they buried him yesterday and everyone said he had
a smile on his face for the first time in years.
