               Faith            Hope            Prosperity

This chain was started in the hope of bringing prosperity to you.

Within three days make five copies of this letter, leaving off the name and address at the top and adding your name and address at the bottom, and mail to five friends to whom you wish prosperity to come.

In omitting the top name, send that person ten cents (10c) wrapped in paper as a donation. In turn, as your name leaves the list you will receive 15,625 letters with donations amounting to $1,562.50.

NOTE: Is this worth a dime to you?

Have the faith your friend had and the chain will not be broken.

From James Calhoun, "Within Three Days Make Five Copies," Postage and the Mailbag, June, 1935, p. 265. Periodical on direct mail. A "verbatim" copy. My format (DWV).
