Then take up the cards, and shuffle them repeatedly, by throwing
a portion of them from the bottom to the top, taking care not to
mix the cards or let any drop, and then let the party cut them as
often as he pleases. Then, take the cards in hand. Pretend to
examine them mysteriously, but in reality only look for YOUR
card--the first dealt out--the ten of diamonds for instance.
Now, suppose he tells you that the card he thought of came out
FIFTH. Then, for a certainty, it is the fourth card on the RIGHT
of the ten of diamonds, in spite of all YOUR shuffling, and all
regular cutting, for such shuffling and regular cutting cannot
alter the order or sequence of the cards. Always remember to
count from your own card inclusive to the number of the card
thought of towards your right hand. But should your card happen
to be so near the right hand or the top as not to allow
sufficient counting, then count as far as it admits to the RIGHT
and then continue at the LEFT. Thus, suppose there are only two
cards above the ten of diamonds, then count two more on the left,
making the fifth. If the card you remember, or your first card,
is first, then count the requisite number on the left, always
beginning with YOUR card, however.
