A convincing, "real time" method of reading sealed messages, as employed by fraudulent mediums and psychics.
A strictly one man feature. The psychic passes among the audience, handing out small, unprepared envelopes containing a blank card. On these cards, spectators write their name and questions, then carefully seal them inside the envelope. The mentalist now collects the envelopes, never allowing them to get out of sight of the writers.
The performer or medium now holds the envelopes to his or her forehead, first calling out the writer's name, then proceeding to answer the spectator's question. After all questions have been answered, the unopened envelopes are then returned to the sitters.
Bear in mind that the questions never leave the spectator's sight. There are no exchanges, switches or steals. The unprepared envelopes, cards and pencils are used. This is a seemingly impossible and supernatural test, yet it is easily accomplished without fear of detection. The complete method and lecture is provided in the digital manuscript.

I'm so disappointed in this one. I am actually a little upset that they'd even sell this out of date garbage. This isn't something that anyone is likely to ever use in their act after 1965.
