Out to get rid of the new school teacher, Prof Sloane, Lum thinks the schoolmaster would flee if the widow Abernathy was after him with romantic intentions. Today he and
Abner compose a love letter to her.
The gents iron out what to say in the anonymous love letter. With such phrases as: How are you? Hope you are fine. this torrid letter of romance might make it hard for the widow to know who exactly sent it.
Cedric enters, but he’s too busy with his school work to compose love letters. Meanwhile, Abner takes dictation as Lum composes to both Abner and Cedric. This is a mix up waiting to happen.
