Luck chain letter (English translation of published Russian).
"Holy Letter." Twenty two copies. Russia, 1990.
Thank God, thank the Holy Spirit, thank the Virgin! Amen.
A twelve year old boy was ill. He met God on the riverside. God gave
him the holy letter and said: "Re-write it twelve times." The boy did this
and recovered. One family re-wrote the letter and obtained a great fortune.
Another family tore up the letter and came to grief.
Rewrite the letter 22 times and after 30 days you will
obtain a great fortune. This is verified. If you will not rewrite it during
three weeks, you will obtain a great grief and an incurable illness. This
is also verified. This letter has gone all around the world. It was
started in 1936. Pay attention after 36 days.
