Parody (published) of money chain letter. Wife exchange. US, 1955

Dear Friend:
This chain letter was started by a man like yourself in the hope that it might bring relief and happiness to other men.
Unlike most chain letters, this one does not cost anything. Simply send a copy of this letter to five married male friends, then bundle up your wife and send her to the man whose name is at the top of the list and add your name to the bottom of it.
The same system can be followed by bachelors who have girls friends they can bundle up.
When your name comes to the top of the list, you will receive 625 women - some of them are bound to be dandies.
HAVE FAITH - Do not break the chain.
One man broke the chain and got his old lady back.
P.S. -- One fellow received 256 women. They buried him the other day, and he had a smile on his face for the first time in years.
