Summary :

"Quite obviously," Perry Mason said, turning to publisher Robert Caddo, "this advertisement is a fake. No intelligent heiress would even read your magazine. And no good-looking heiress of twenty-three would advertise to meet a man. What do the authorities say?" - "They've advised me either to withdraw this issue or to prove to them that the ad is genuine. I can't." - "Why not?" - "All I have is her box number," Robert Caddo explained. "I've written her a dozen letters and got no answers." - "What do you want me to do?" Perry Mason asked. "Get me off the spot with the authorities." Mason thought for a minute and then said, "Bring me a dozen copies and a check for five hundred dollars and I'll see what I can do." Caddo's eyes narrowed. "I'd want some sort of guarantee." - "I'll guarantee to give you a receipt for the money," Mason said, grinning. "And if, as I suspect, you're trying to use me as a cat's-paw to front for you on a come-on scheme, I'll send you a bill for five thousand dollars, and see that you pay it!'"
