started by an American officer should go three times around the world. Do
not break the chain for whoever does will have bad luck. Do it within
24 hours and count nine days and you will have some great good fortune.
Published: Modesto Evening News
(Modesto, California), June 5, 1922. PESTIFEROUS CHAIN LETTERS.
They Are Asinine Affairs that Should Not Be Tolerated by Men and Women
Who Like Good Mail Service. "The chain letter that is now going the rounds
in Modesto starts off with a list of twenty or more names of people who have
already passed it on to nine of their friends." "Following the names is this
asinine request:" [above text] "The proper punishment for the perpetrator
would be to force him to pilot a black cat thirteen times around the block
while he chewed a rabbit's foot and broke mirrors at every third step. Spitting
right in the face of hard luck in such a fashion without being hurt should
break him of the idea that it is bad luck to break a link in a chain letter."
