Luck Chain Letter. Blind13 type. "Copy and send to 13 persons ..."   "Read Psalm 56."    US, 1941.
Lord be merciful to us.
Grace be to all Nations.

     This prayer must go to all nations of the
world.  If you fail to send it a great misfor-
tune will come to your family.  As soon as you
receive this, copy and send to 13 persons and
on the 13th day you will receive a blessing in
cash.  One woman made fun of this and a great
misfortune came to her family.  Pay attention
to this and the Lord will bless you.  Read
Psalm 56.
