Published: Colorado Springs Gazette, Aug. 5, 1963, p. 6. Letter to Editor. "This is not the first time such letters have been mailed to some of our family; none have gone any farther."  Transcription error at some point: "... and this copy only if you want bad luck" is as in newspaper. But it may have originally read something like:  "... and please do not keep this copy or you will have bad luck."  Entered by DWV, Jan. 9, 2014.
