- some local names given. Their comments (cf. Media CL). US, 1924.
Copy this and send it to nine people
to whom you wish good luck. The chain was started by an American officer and
should go around the world three times. Do it within twenty-four hours, and
after nine days good luck will come. Do not break the chain, for whoever does
will have bad luck.

Ohio), March 28, 1924, p. 8. Subtitle: "Business Men Decline To Defy
Fate" Byline: Chicago. "Among its recipients were several of the successful
business men, to wit: Harry B. Hurd, Attorney; H. J. Lorber, insurance broker;
Thomas Byrne, wealthy contractor; W. R. Dawes, vice-president of the Central
Trust company. Mr. Falon, who of course, is not superstitious sent the copy
of the letter to Walter Cahil, of the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock company.
"I think it's all damphool!" opined Mr. Hurd, "but still - and he started
his nine copies. Mr. Lorber, in the insurance business, which does not permit
superstition, turned the letter over to his stenographer for the copies.
Perhaps after all - but then you never can tell." Entered by DWV, Jan.
