Actually aired in the Summer time, when seasonal cards are produced, and selling them offered folks of the old time radio era a chance to earn a few dollars. Henry Aldrich is trying to work with a card company to get some samples to show, so he can get orders. He isn’t motivated by selfish gain, but he’s trying to do his part in his patriotic duty to buy war bonds. At the same time, his dad is organizing the community event to promote the war bond sales.
The telegraph office is the center of mix ups when the two Aldrich men have their long distant messages mistaken. Will the crazy mix ups ruin both plans to sell Christmas cards and war bonds? Some how it all manages to work out.
