Within 5 days make 5 copies of this
card & send it to 5 friends. Send a
 wash rag to both names above.  &
leave off the top name & add yours
to the bottom.  In this manner you
will receive 30 wash rags immedate-
ly instead of waiting till your name
reaches the top.  Do not break
this chain as it is fun to see where
they come from.
                                   Thank you

thought you & Doris said she
had enough wash rags
in her cedar chest?  It looks
like she doesn't though.
address is wrong
again in front? eh
