(New Castle, Pennsylvania), April 19, 1912, p. 9. ENDLESS CHAIN PRAYER
SCHEME IS BEING WORKED "Some of the nonsensical farces carried on under the
name of religion take one back to the days of superstition and witchcraft.
Just now one of the farces being inflicted upon the people of the community
is an "ancient prayer, endless chain" letter that is finding its way
into the hands of many. A copy of the letter follows:" [text] "There
is no fault to find with the sentiment expressed in the prayer, but such
anonymous communications have a tendency to do much more harm than good.
They cause unnecessary fear and anxiety among those who hold to superstitions
that influence their lives." Entered by DWV, July 29, 2014.
