The Card Found Out By The Point Of The Sword

When a card has been drawn, you place it under the long card, and by

shuffling them dexterously, you bring it to the top of the pack. Then

lay or throw the pack on the ground, observing where the top card

lies. A handkerchief is then bound round your eyes, which ought to be

done by a confederate, in such a way that you can see the ground. A

sword is put into your hand, with which you touch several of the

cards, as if in doubt, but never losing sight of the top card, in

which at last you fix the point of the sword, and present it to the

party who drew it.
