While Ben's away in Carson City, his doppelganger, crafty and crooked Bradley Meredith, returns to assume his identity. His scheme to get his hands on the Cartwright's properties involves pretending "Ben" is seriously ill and selling off the Ponderosa a piece at a time.


In his second attempt to cash in on Ben's good name, crooked lookalike Bradley Meredith learns that the Cartwrights are in Carson City and, posing as Ben, pretends that he is seriously ill and begins to liquidate the Ponderosa's assets. The Cartwrights come just in time to foil Meredith's plans.
