At the commencement of this preliminary patter, pick up the packet of five envelopes, and take them into the LEFT hand, the sealed flaps TOWARDS the audience, the left thumb BEHIND the packet and the fingers in front of the packet. In other words, the left thumb and fingers hold the packet at the spot where the note is concealed. Back and front of the packet can be shown casually and the left hand is seen to be otherwise empty.
