we have just completed the story of washington irving... 'the devil and tom walker'. it is said that the title itself has become a proverb in england. my question is:-
write a sentence that uses "the devil and tom walker" as a proverb and explains its meaning.

  • please help english!!! -

    DId you read it? The phrasing "we have just completed the story..." makes me wonder. Read it, it is a ten minute read. By the way, if you read the story, it is not England, but New England.

    We will be happy to critique your sentence on the meaning.
