Luck chain letter (postcard). Ancient Prayer. "Prepare 'O Lord Jesus ..."  "Sign nothing but date received"  US, 1912.
Received April 19th. An Ancient Prayer
Prepare "O Lord Jesus Implore Thee
Bless all mankind. Keep us to dwell
with you eternally."  This prayer
was sent to me, and is to be sent all
over the world. Copy it and see what
will happen. It was sent in Jesus
time. Those who passed it by would
meet with some misfortune. Those who
copy within 9 days and send to 9 friends
will on the 9th receive some great joy.
Do not break the chain.
Sign nothing but day received.
