Hope, Faith, Charity
This chain was started in hope of bringing prosperity to you. Within
three days make five copies of this letter leaving off top name and address
and adding your name and address at the bottom and mail to five of your friends
whom you wish prosperity to come. In omitting top name send that person (.10
cents wrapped in paper) as a charity donation.
In turn as your name leaves top of list you will receive 15625 letters
with donations amounting to $1562.50. Now! Is this worth a dime to you?
Have the faith your friend has, and this chain will not be broken. Read this
carefully, and take a chance. I did.
Please do not break this chain.
Handwritten in ink on two sheets of 7
