The Flanders Charm:
   The Flanders Charm of Good Luck was sent to me by a friend. I am sending it on to you, so don't break it. Copy this and send it within 24 hours to four persons you wish good luck. It was charmed by an American officer, and must go around the world three times.  So don't pause, or you will have sad luck. It is positively remarkable how the prediction has been fulfilled.

Send it as soon as possible and watch what will happen on the fourth day.

Published: Modesto Bee and News-Herald (Modesto, California), 9 April 1927, pl 20. Title: A Pest.  "The one who started the letter on its way started a huge practical joke."  Sic "sad", but may be a transcription error. Entered by DWV, Dec. 19, 2013.
