What is the mysterious coat of arms. They anticipate a phone call from the anonymous stranger. Should they suspect a trap, or a hostile overthrow of the kingdom?

The phone call is to come tomorrow, so its OK to answer the call today. What does the school teacher, Miss Fredericks, have to say? Has she found some information on the baby’s coat of arms? Conclusion jumping continues as Lum speculates on the baby’s mother who left him in their care. Will there be high honors waiting for them for their excellent care of the baby? Maybe the stranger who wrote the letter is really a woman… the queen… is Lum correct in raising new suspicions?
