Lum has been arrested after being caught breaking into the Jot ‘Em Down store. Today we find him still being held under Marshal Henry Lundford’s care. The ever watchful, and strict lawman tries to run his jaiol by the book. Not having any prisoners before in Pine Ridge, he tries to run the tiny jail like a big time prison.
The case against Lum is flimsy enough, and his whole case hinges on the letter he wrote to deed over his part of the store to Abner. At every turn, Squire has a hand in stirring up trouble. But where could that letter be?
Abner is ready to make up with Lum, and wants to rip up that letter. There’s just a little complication with that plan, even though Lum has had the letter in his possession for severl days now. We also learn that Lum is in the position of putting his own case on triao since he’s the Justice of the Peace.
