With sharp scissors carefully out out a heart pip. On the back of it put a small piece of magician's wax. (You have a box of it in your outfit) and fasten pip in the center of the Four of Hearts card to make it look like a Five of Hearts. You may paste the pip on in another way also. Rub it on a wet cake of soap and stick it on the card, letting it dry on thoroughly. Either method is good. Figure 28.
Place the prepared card in the envelope with the red tissue paper letter, both on the same side of the middle partition. Place envelope, open end upward, in inner coat pocket on right side.
If you prepare your envelope to look like one which you received through the mails, your effect will be even better. Put a canceled stamp on, your name and address. I often f j G ¿S
have a real letter in the envelope on the side opposite the red tissue letter and the card. When I take the envelope from my pocket, I pull out the letter and discard it. It appears to the audience that I just took an envelope at random from my pocket and they suspect nothing unusual about it. Little angles of working like this give the NATURAL touch to magic.
