In this book, there is The Devil and Daniel Webster, and other short stories written by Stephen Vincent Benét. The second story is called The Sobbin Women. This story was the insperation for the musical, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. In the movie, those of you who have seen it might remember Adam Potapee referring to one of Millie's books, about the romans and the sobbing women, while trying to pursuade the brothers to go get their girls if they wanted to marry them. In the origanal story, Millie and the 7 brothers, and the minister's daughter are all in the there, but some with different names, and different personalities then in the movie. Millie is a bit more cunning in the story.
