Luck chain letter (postcard).  Good Luck type. Ends: "The above letter was received by me ..."  US, 1922.
Dear Sarah:     7/13/22
              Good Luck
Copy this and send it to 9
people whom you wish good
luck. The chain was started
by an American officer and
should go 3 times around
the world. Do not break
the chain for whoever will
have bad luck. Do it
within 24 hours and wait
9 days and you will have
some very good fortune.
The above letter was received
by me and I am sending
                    it on to you.
