The truth about who the thief really is has come out. Lum isn’t happy with Abner for doing it, but as much as Cedric knows, he doesn’t know Abners motives for taking the money. Lum is sure that Abner has backslid further than he thought.
Cedric comes clean on all his doings, but it still doesn’t put Abner in the best light with Lum. Abner is keeping his distance, and has gone back to Pine Ridge, and Squire thinks the circus has pretty much run its course for the season.
Is it time to call it quits, and leave the life of show buisiness for the comforts of the Jot ‘Em Down store? Squire lays on the smooth words, and gets Lum to sign a contract to make him the agent to sell the circus. All Squire needs is a selling price, and a signature from Lum. Does Squire already have a buyer, and a deal already arranged?
