I'm looking for a particular word/phrase that I ran across years ago and filed in my gray matter. Apparently, I'm having "retrieval issues"…

I want to associate it with Amish women, but I don't know why.

For some reason the phrase, "chain letter" keeps bobbing to the surface of my brain, BUT THAT ISN'T IT!

A woman writes a letter and mails it. Her recipient reads it and adds her own pages, mailing everything. The third recipient reads everything, and adds her own bit. The third or fourth recipient returns it to the first letter writer. She removes the original letter, but adds a new one… And sends it to the second recipient.

And so on…

This isn't a chain letter, I don't think it was called a "loop-de-loop letter, but it should've been.

Do you know what this is?
