Summary Edit

Investigator Perry Mason shares some quiet, personal thoughts with E.B.'s legal secretary, Della Street. Perhaps the beginnings of a personal platonic relationship with her, before he ghosts her the next day at a rooming house.

Della's search for a lawyer leads to an arrangement which begins to explain a future development that will be seen in the PMTVS.

While drinking a bit too much whiskey, Perry goes off on a rant because the defendant in the case he is investigating is being railroaded, a speech of sorts that is addressed to no one in particular. Perry has a productive discussion with Deputy DA, Hamilton Burger.
