This chain which comes from Venezuela was written by St. Antione de Cadi, a missionary from South Africa. Since this chain must take a tour of the world, you mail 20 copies identical to this one and send them to your friends, parents, acquaintances, and after a few days you will get a surprise. This is true even if you are not superstitious.

Take not of the following: Constance Dias received the chain in 1953. She asked her secretary to make 20 copies and send them out. A few days later she won the lottery of $2 million in her country. Charles Brent, 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 to 20 people. Nine days later he found a better job. For no reason should this chain be broken. Make 20 copies and send them. In about nine days you will get a surprise.
