Jill Nelson tells how she has run three promotional letters four times last year. The first time she got $7,000 cash and around $7,000 the other three times. If this letter continues as it should, everyone profits.
Don't worry about financing or paying back money. After the first time you will see and the next time you will participate eagerly. Now let me tell you the story and the details. Follow them and in about ten days you will be about $8,000 richer.
This letter will pay $8,000 because there are only four names on the list at all times. Three moves and you are on the top and in a position to receive $1.00 from each participant. This promotional letter was started by Jil Nelson from Nashville, Tennessee for the purpose of acquiring investment capital. Now this has been expanded. Send $1.00 wrapped in a blank sheet of paper to the first person on the list below. Then omit that name from the list and add your name in the fourth position. Send the letter bearing your name to twenty new people.
Mail your letter within 48 hours and do not break the chain. When your name reaches the first position, it will be your turn to collect the fees. This will be sent to you by 8,000 like yourself. Please do not break the chain. It really works! In fact, if the chain is not broken there is no way it cannot work. Your entire investment is only $1.00. This is all you loan.
Be sure to copy this letter in its entirety. Omit none of it. Send your report to the Imperial Sales company, 3095 Evey Way, Knoxville, Tenn.37914. Let us know when your fee was sent and how much was received in 9 days. We are at this time receiving almost $100 return from the people carrying this promotional letter. the majority receive X $7,000.
Four names should appear on your letter. The first name is omitted after you send that person your $1.00. Your name should be in the fourth position on the letters you send out. $8,000 is capital free. Send letters to the people you know personally and consider to be your friends. SEND ONLY TO THOSE YOU KNOW WOULD GRANT YOU PROSPERITY.

As one of the steps in a long spiral, I recognize those around me and in good faith, pass the torch, and one dollar plus postage and preparation time and if I don't win, I can try again, some other time.
