Luck chain letter (published).  Early "Good Luck" type. Postcard. England, 1922.

Good Luck! Copy this out and send it to nine people to whom you wish good luck. The chain was started by an American officer and should go around the world eight times. Do not break the chain, as whoever does will have bad luck. Do it within twenty-four hours and count nine days and you will have great good luck.

From: Solomon in All His Glory, Robert Lynd, Putnam, 1923, essays. Same article in The New Statesman, April 15, 1922 by "Y.Y."  Says a "deluge of postcards" has lately fallen on England. Half the population has gotten them. All are anonymous.
