The Milton Prediction Mystery

The magician first writes a card name on a small slip of paper. Without showing it, it is folded in four to quarter size and left in full view. The pack is now shown, backs and fronts, and is well spread to show that the cards are all different. One card is selected by a spectator and held up to show the audience. If required, the spectator can change their mind and choose a different card. When the final choice is decided on, the slip of paper is handed out to be unfolded and read aloud. On it is written the name of the selected card. This is a cleverly designed trick with good impact on an audience. Complete with instructions copyright L. Davenport & Co, London.
