Luck chain letter (postcard). Blind13. "... have
mercy on our boy in service and bless our mother." US, 1945.
Oh Lord, have mercy on our boy
in service and bless our mother. I ask in the name of the Lord. This prayer
must be sent all over the world. Copy and send it to 13 persons and on the
13th day happiness will come to your house. One lady made fun of it and on
the 13th day she went blind. Do not let the prayer die in your house. It
was sent to me and I am sending it on to you.
