Luck chain letter. Chain of Good Luck. Published. "...sent
to me by Ronald Service, Essex ..." 12 copies. US. 1952.
The chain of good
luck was sent to me by Ronald Service, Essex, and was sent less than 72 hours
after he got it himself.
It was started in Africa by a French officer under Gen.
DeGaulle, and is going around the world for the first time. The person
that breaks the chain will surely receive bad luck. Do not keep this. It
must be mailed 72 hours after receipt thereof.
A private in the Philippine Army won first prize in a sweepstakes
on complying with this chain. Mr. Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected president
of the U.S.A. 32 hours after he mailed the letter.
Capt. Haesee, who broke the chain, died after he received
it. Seb H. Williams in the city of Dargen, who laughed at the chain of
good luck, met instantaneous death in an accident in 1949.
