Gracie talks with the Happy Postman about his joy of Western novels. How does it affect the home life of the postman? Even George has been reading cowboy tales and it shows in his manner of speech. Gracie is a little embarrassed at the low brow literature, since she has been trying to get into a high class book club. Has Bill Goodwin even gone wild over books, and given up chasing girls?
Meredeth Willson has joined George in the corral of readers of those cowboy love tales. Gracie is disgusted with the literary choices of the menfolk, but she keeps getting her authors confused. Meredeth and the orchestra play, Georgia.
Mrs Randolf is to come over to see if Gracie qualifies for her dignified club. George bails out, and goes to the drugstore while Gracie spills out her confused knowledge of books to the high class lady. Though her lack of literary knowledge is about to get her booted from the club, Gracie claims that George is related to the famous author, Robert Burns. Has she made a good impression? How is she going to explain how the Jewish George is related to the Scottish poet?
Though Mrs Randal sees through the ruse once George gets home, what will the uppity woman think of the cowboy novels?
