This chain comes from Venezeula, was written by St. Antino DeCadi, a
missionary from South America.

Since this chain must take a tour of the world, you must make 20 copies
identical to this one and send it to your friends, parents, parents,
acquaintances and after a few days you will get a surprise.  This is
true, even if you are not superstitious.

Take note of the following:

Constantino Dias received the chain in 1953. He asked his secretary to
make 20 copies and send them.  A few days later he won the lottery of
$2 Million dollars in his country.

Carlos Brandt, an office employee, received the chain. He forgot it and
lost it.  A few days later he lost his job. He found the chain and
sent it out to 20 people.  Nine days later he got a better job.

Zarin Barrachilli received the chain. Not believing it, he then threw
it away.  Nine days later he died.  For no reason whatsoever should
this chain be broken.  Make 20 copies and send them. In 9 days you
will get a surprise.
