Exchange chain letter. Send one picture postcard, 5 names, 8 copies. Folklorists. US, 1983?

     This is a picture postcard chain for collectors.  It was started by,
or at any rate has been sent to and from, folklorists.  It may be part of a
very important research project.  Or maybe they just like postcards.

     Send a postcard to the first person on the list relating to the
category described.  Remove the name at the top of the list and add your
name to the bottom.  Copy this letter 8 times and mail it to 8 friends.

     In 18 days you will receive 200 postcards.  This letter should be
mailed within 3 days or the chain will be broken.  It is bad luck to break
the chain - very bad luck.  Keith Cunningham thought - he just thought --about

breaking the chain, and now he is on crutches for three weeks.  If you do not
want to participate, inform the person who sent you this letter so he or
she can send it on to other postcard people.

     Do not break the chain.
