Luck chain letter. Good luck - internalized.  X toY: 113 different names! Retype of prior letter. International, 1926.

                 From Marie Gras-y-Fort..... Barcelona (Spain) February 1926

    S. Gras-y-Fort of Barcelona has sent me this Good Luck Chain Letter and
I am sending it       on so as not to break the chain of good luck. Among
others I am sending it to you and ask you as I have been asked, not to break
the chain. Copy this and send it to nine persons to whom you wish good luck.
the chain was started by an American Officer and should go round the world
three times.

    Do not break the chain, for whoever does will have bad luck. Write nine
letters and send them within twenty four hours. Count nine days and you will
have some good luck. It is positively remarkable how many times this predic-
tion has been fulfilled since this chain was started. With success for you
and yours, let us go smiling and happy through 1926.
