From the download:
"Effect: A spectator shuffles a pack of cards while the cardician writes a name of a card on a piece of paper. When the assistant is thru shuffling the pack the name of the card is openly shown to him. It reads, for example, the ten of Diamonds. The performer instructs the spectator to take the pack into his hands. He is told to deal the cards face up one at a time and stop when the ten of Diamonds shows up. The spectator starts to deal the deck and as he does so, the cardician informs him he should, in the course of his deal, leave one card face down. The dealer has a free choice as to which card he wishes to leave face down. When he has dealt a card face down, the remainder are dealt face up in an attempt to arrive at the ten of Diamonds. The situation builds up as the cards become fewer and fewer. Finally the last card is dealt face up. The ten of Diamonds has not shown. The cardician picks up the pack in order to run thru the cards and check on the possibility of the assistant having by-passed this card. However, the ten of Diamonds is not in evidence. It sounds impossible but the ten of Diamonds turns out to be the one card that was dealt face down by the spectator.
The conditions under which the effect is performed allows for very free and easy handling. The effect is strictly impromptu and the pack an ordinary one. Two methods of opening the procedure will be described. The cardician can decide for himself which he prefers."
