Luck chain letter. Death-Lottery type. "It works."  Matthew 21:22 title ("Belief"). "Constartin Xus".  US, 1981.

This quote has been sent to you for good luck.  The original is from the
Netherlands.  It has been around the world 9 times.  The luck has now been
brought to you.  You will receive good luck within 6 days of receiving the
letter, provided, you in turn send it back out...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 fate has no price on it.  DO NOT KEEP THIS
LETTER.  It must leave your hand 96 hours after you receive it.  An R.A.F. officer
received $70,000 after he sent his letters out.  Joe Elliott received $650,000
and lost it, because he broke the chain.  While in the Phillippines, General Welch
lost his life 6 days after he received this letter.  He failed to circulate this
quote.  However, before his death he received $75,000.  Please send 20 copies of
this letter and see what happens to you on the sixth day.  This chain comes from
Venezuela, and was written by Saul Anthony DeVoid, a missionary from South Amer-
ica.  I, myself, forwarded this to you, but it is sent anonymous to you.  Since
this chain makes a tour of the world; you must make 20 identical copies, send it
to your friends, relatives and associates.  After a few days you will get a sur-
prise.  This is true even if you are not superstitious.

Take note of the following:

Constartin Xus received the chain in 1959.  He asked his secretary to make 20
copies and send them out.  After a few days he won a lottery for $2,000,000 in his
country.  Carlo Daditt, an office employee, received the chain and forgot about it.
A few days later he lost his job.  He found the chain letter, and sent it out to
20 people the next day.  Five days later, he got an even better job.


Remember, send no money.  Please do not ignore.  It works.

                                                          A friend.
