Luck chain letter. Good Luck with Linkage, no Affirmation.
Started by a British army officer. US, 1926.
This good luck letter was sent to me by a friend and I am sending it to
you and others. I am asking you not to break this chain but to copy the complete
letter and send it to nine of your friends whom you wish good luck. This
letter was started by a British army officer and should go around the world
Do not break this chain as those who do will have bad luck. Write nine
letters and mail within 24 hours and on the ninth day good luck will come
to you through life.

the good luck chain letters received by residents here and in many cases
