Luck chain letter. Death-Lottery type. Early "It Does Work" variety. Trust title. US, 1979. 


     This prayer has been sent to you for good luck.  The original
copy is from the Netherlands.  It has been around the world nine times.
The luck has now been brought to you.  You will receive good luck within
four days of receiving this letter provided you in turn send it back off.
This is no joke.  You will receive it in the mail.  Send copies of this
letter to people you think need good luck.  Do not send money, for the
faith has no price.  Do not keep this letter.  It must leave your hands
within 90 hours after you receive it.  An RAF Officer received $70,000.00
Joe Elliot received $400,00.00 and lost it because he broke the chain.
While in the Phillipines General Welen lost his life six days after he
received the letter.  He failed to circulate the prayer.  However before his
death he received $775,00.00.  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 DeCalif 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 his one and send it to your
friends parents or associates.  After a few days you will receive a
suprise.  This is true even if you are not superstitious.  Take note of
the following.
     Constantine 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 in his country for $2,000.000.00.  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 20 copies and five days later
he got a better job.  Dalin Nairchild received the cahin and not
believing in it threw it away five days later he died.

     For no reason what so ever should this chain be broken.

     Remember No Money
Please do not ignore this.  It does work.
