Found using newspapers.com. Earliest known example of title: "Prosperity
Club". Possibly a Hyatt variation, but the contents of the list are not
specified, and circumnavigation is retained. It is not known if the Send-a-Dime
letter title "Prosperity Club" was copied from some Prosperity letter like
the above. English Send-a-Dime letters also had copy quota five instead of
six and for US Send-a-Dime. See Winnipeg Tribune, Dec. 5, 1934
for more on Prosperity Club.
