The Chain Letter of Paul the Apostle to the
Corinthians. With love all things are possible. This

was plagued by various problems: thrice she was beaten
with rods, once she was stoned, and thrice suffered
shipwreck. On the last day of these occasions, she
spent a night and day in the deep. Finally, she copied
the letter. A trumpet sounded, and she was raised
Remember: Believeth all things, hopeth all things. The
chain never faileth.
