Luck chain letter (described). Lottery-Death type. Saint Antoine de Sedi. England, 1974.

The letter is said to contain the prayer of Saint Antoine de Sedi. Make twenty copies and send them to friends, relatives and acquaintances. You will then receive good luck in the post, four days after receiving the letter. Constantine Diso received the letter in 1953, instructed his secretary to make twenty four (twenty) copies and send them off. "A few days later he won the lottery of two million dollars in his country."

Carlos Brandt (Carlos Branot), an office worker, received the chain but forgot about it (lost it). He lost his job. He found the letter, sent out twenty four copies, and found a better job. Good luck comes four days later; the letter must be sent out in ninety-six hours.

A general in the Philippines received the letter and $775,000 but died six days later because he failed to circulate the chain. Zerin Berreskelli received the letter and threw it away. Nine days later he died.

There is a plea that anyone who has received the letter before to record good or bad luck from it on the copies they pass on.

The Prayer: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and all will acknowledge that he will light the way." The chain must make a tour of the world. It has been around the world ten times.

The letter starts by saying it comes from Venezuela, after the prayer it says it comes from the Netherlands.
