The Flander's Chain of Luck.
This letter of Good Luck was sent to me so I am sending it to you.
Do not break the chain of luck. Send it to five more of or friends. This
chain started in Holland and went around the world three times. Do not break
the chain or you will have bad luck. After you have sent this letter you
will have good luck. It is positively remarkable how this prediction has
been fulfilled. So send this letter and four more to friends and see what
happens on the fourth day. Good luck. Do not keep this. From me to you.

IN CANONSBURG. Canonsburg, Pa, Oct. 28 - "Another spasm of chain letter
writing has struck this section and many have in the past week been annoyed
by the anonymous epistles. Not only that, but some have been made very nervous
and the superstitious have felt forced to do as the letter bids for fear
of bad luck" "... if the writer is discovered it will go hard
with him or her, for the postal law is very strict on the using of the United
States mail for sending chain letters. The following is the letter that is
being circulated at the present time:" [text] "The above letter has
been turned over to the postal authorities and every effort will be made
by them to run down the originator of the chain, and if proof can be obtained
it will go hard for the offender."
