Premise / Background:
A Governess becomes influential in the home of a widowed congressman.
Based on the 1947 movie of the same name. 307 Marshall Road, Washington, D.C., was the residence of the Morley family:
Glen, widower and congressman; his mother, Agatha; and his children, Steven and Danny

Seeking a government job teaching under-privileged children in the Congo, Katy Holstrum, a beautiful, naive, Minnesota
farm girl seeks the help of her congressman. Impressed with her ability to handle his sons, Glen offers her the position
of governess, which she accepts.

Stories depict: the home and working life of a congressman; and the attempts of a Swedish country girl to adjust to both
political and city life. Through simple charm and native intelligence Katy managed to loosen up the sometimes stuffy
politicians around her and to further Glen's bumbling political career.
