and lost it because he broke the chain.  While in the Phillipines,
General Welch lost his life six days after he received this letter.
HE failed to circulate the prayer.  However, before his death
hereceived $775,000.  Please send out  20 copies  to see what happens
 to you on the fourth day. This chain comes from Venezuela and was
written by Saul Anthony De Cadif, a missionary from South America.
I, myself, now forward it to you.  Since  this chain must make a
tour of the world, you must make 20 copies identical to this one
and send  it to your friends, parents, or associates. After a few
days,you will  get  a  surprise.  THIS is  true even if  you  are
not  superstitious.  Take  note  of  the  following.

Constattino  Dias received the chain in 1953.   He asked his
secretary to  make 20 copies and send them.  A  few days later
he won a lottery for $2,000,000 in his country.  Carlo Raditt,
an  office  employee, received the chain.  He forgot  it and a
few days later lost his job.  He  found the chain letter and
sent it to 20 people.  Five days later he got an even better job.
Dalin Nairchild received the chain and not believing in it threw
it away.  Nine days later he died.  For  no  reason what so ever
should this chain be broken.
