 In 1897, August Roterberg, in his //New Era Card Tricks//, included four methods for this matching effect, all with the participants being one spectator and the performer. The first method, [[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​34138/​New+era+card+tricks/​158|"​Marvelous Coincidence"​]],​ p. 158, is the same as Hofzinser'​s "The Thoughts",​ although with no attribution. The other three methods are variants on that of "​Marvelous Coincidence",​ focused on eliminating a double-faced deck. These are gathered under the title of [[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​34138/​New+era+card+tricks/​175|"​Grande Clairvoyance Mysterieuse"​]],​ p. 167. The third method (p. 169) was published a year earlier in Conradi'​s //​[[http://​www.conjuringcredits.com/​lib/​tpl/​credits/​files/​1896-conradi.pdf|Der Moderne Kartenk√ľnstler]]//,​ 1896, p. 52, under the title "​Gleich und gleich gesellt sich gern". Conradi claimed this method as his invention, but Roterberg failed to mention Conradi when he included his friend'​s trick in his book. In 1897, August Roterberg, in his //New Era Card Tricks//, included four methods for this matching effect, all with the participants being one spectator and the performer.

-The earliest published example using the title of "You Do as I Do" may be "Do as I Do...with a Difference"​ in Sidney Lawrence'​s //​[[http://​www.conjuringcredits.com/​lib/​tpl/​credits/​files/​1910-Sidney-Lawrence.pdf|Ten Self-working Card Miracles]]//,​ 1910, n.p.
