Haunted by dreams of subpoenas and legal woes, Gildy is jumpy, and gives word to the family that he’s not taking any visitors. He comes clean about his breach of promise situation. Teenage drama runs rampant. Will they have to move to a different town? Gildy warns of the dangers of a hot blooded woman like Miss Del Rey.
How long can Gildersleeve hope to stay barricaded indoors? If he only had a lawyer. If he only knew what was plotted against him. Suspicions, paranoia, and pacing the floor finally hit the pressure point. Braving the world, and taking the chance, Gildy dons a disguise, and visits Peavey. Will there be any news for him to learn down at Floyd’s barber shop?
Coming clean to Floyd, so Gildy can borrow a cab that he’s storing, Gildy is forced to spill a few beans. He has to fend off fares while snooping on Miss Del Rey’s house. Disguising his voice, and milking her for information, there isn’t much to learn… but does his disguise fool the Spanish dance teacher?
