This message has been sent to you for Good Luck. The original is in New
England. It has been sent around the world nine times. The luck has now been
sent to you. You will receive good luck within four days of receiving this
message. Provided you, in turn, send it on. This is no joke. You will
receive luck in the mail. No money.

Send copies to people you think need good luck. Don't send money as fate has
no price. Do not keep this message, it must leave your hands in 96 hours. A
United States Air Force officer received $470,000. Another man received
$40,000 and lost it because he broke the chain.

Whereas the the Phillipines, Gene Welch lost his wife 51 days after receiving
the message. He failed to circulate the message. However before his death,
he received $7,555,000.

Please send twenty copies and see what happens in four days. The chain comes
from Venezuela and was written by Saul De Groda, a missionary from South
America. Since the copy must tour the world, send them to friends and
associates. After a few days you will get a surprise. This is true even you
are not superstitious.

Do note the following: Constatine Dias received his chain in 1958. He asked
his secretary to make twenty copies and send them out. A few days later he
won a lottery of two million dollars. Carlos Dadill, an office employee,
received his message and forgot that it had to leave his hands in 96 hours.
He lost his job. Later, after finding the message again, he mailed twenty
copies. A few days alter he got a better job. Dalan Fairchild received the
message not believing, threw the message away. Nine days later he died.

In 1987, the message received by a young woman in California was very faded
and barely readable. She promised herself that she would retype the message
and send it on, but she set it aside to do later. She was plagued with
various problems including expensive car repairs and sicknesses. The letter
did not leave her hands in 96 hours. She finally retyped the letter as promised
and got a new car.

Good luck , but please remember: 20 copies of this message must leave your
hands in 96 hours. You must not sign this message.

Photocopy (several generations at least) of email original (AOL, sent June 26, 1995 to 19 recipients). Single sheet folded and stapled with address label. Mailed anonymously from Jacksonville, FLA to Lake City, FLA. Mailing address probably taken from a phone book. Postmarked on Feb. 2, 1996. Lines preserved. Probably circulated as paper since email date 95-06-26, but I am using postmark date.  Supplied by Mrs. M. C. VanArsdale to D. VanArsdale.
