Luck chain letter. Ancient Prayer. Red Cross
Chain. " ...it came from Russia, via Scotland, San Francisco and Seattle."
Red Cross Chain
Lord Jesus we implore Thee to give victory to the allies. Amen
Please copy this letter and send it to some person each day for nine
days. Please do not break the chain as it came from Russia, via Scotland,
San Francisco and Seattle to go around the world. It was said in ancient
times that all those who sent the message would be free from calamity and
those who pass it by would wrestle with misfortune. On the ninth day you
will receive some great joy. Do not forget for the next nine days, beginning
with the day you receive this.

21 Nov. 1917, p. 1. Found using newspaperarchives.com. Title: "The Chain
Letter Nuisance Is Being Overworked" "Numbers of Wabash people have
been receiving copies of "chain letters" recently, the source of which is
past finding out, of course, but which have originated, no doubt, either
in the diseased brain of some over-superstitious individual or in the mind
of a practical joker who wishes to test human credulity to its ultimate limit."
