To Copy A Seal
In magical performances, it is often necessary to open a sealed envelope, and yet leave no evidence of your having broken the wax. You take an impression of the seal by smartly striking a piece of soft lead on it. Break the seal and reseal the inclosure; fuse the wax again by directing the tube of a blow-pipe on it, and seal with the lead reverse. No trace will remain of the seal having been tampered with.
