 Bolstering this indirectly is "A New Force" in //​Wrinkles//​ by S. Wilson Bailey and Harold A. Osborne (1910), p. 38. The Bailey-Osborn procedure is this: Force card is on the bottom; spectator cuts off half the pack, picks up lower portion and deals it onto the cut-off stock (thus bringing the force card to the top), then cuts the deck again; magician asks for a half-pack to be designated, and equivoques the upper stock, the top card of which is then used. This is an admittedly labored procedure, and it could be argued there would be no reason to suggest it if the cross-the-cut force had been known at the time. Bolstering this indirectly is "A New Force" in //​Wrinkles//​ by S.
