The Card In The Pocket-book

A confederate is previously to know the card you have taken from the

pack, and put into your pocket-book. You then present the pack to him,

and desire him to fix on a card, (which we will suppose to be the

queen of diamonds,) and place the pack on the table. You then ask him

the name of the card, and when he says the queen of diamonds, you ask

him if he be not mistaken, and if he be sure that the card is in the

pack: when he replies in the affirmative, you say, "It might be there

when you looked over the cards, but I believe it is now in my pocket;"

then desire a third person to put his hand in your pocket, and take

out your book, and when it is opened the card will appear.
