-The method using a confederate, who is cued to misname the selection already pre-planted in the pocket was documented in W. Hooper's //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12809/Hooper+Rational+Recreations+Second+Ed+Vol+4+1782/219|Rational Recreations Vol. 4]]//, 1782, p. 251 of the second edition. This method was often repeated in print throughout the nineteenth century. Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin later updated the handling to include a signed card, palm, and wallet load in "The Card in the Pocketbook" from //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12776/Essential+Robert+Houdin/161| Les Secrets de la Magie et de la Prestidigitation]]//, 1868, p. 110 of the Hoffmann translation.+The method using a confederate, who is cued to misname the selection already pre-planted in the pocket was documented in W.

 +A method for loading the selection into an apparently sealed envelope inside a wallet that is tied shut is given by Henry Hatton and Adrian Plate in //[[https://askalexander.org/display/13191/Magicians+Tricks+How+They+Are+Done/77|Magicians' Tricks: How They Are Done]]//, 1910, "Card in the Pocketbook, p. 64. This method is the forefather of Ed Balducci's popular "Card in Wallet", published in //[[https://askalexander.org/display/38686/Hugard+s+magic+monthly/103|Hugard's Magic Monthly]]//, Vol. 15 No. 11, Apr. 1958, p. 121. And these methods have since been varied and nuanced countless times.
