Hi I am Eliza, the cook for the cook coffee house. I am a free black person who used to be a slave. My husband bought me out of slavery and he was killed by a horse. I live with Mrs. Cook and Maddie in the coffee house.
When mother got sick Maddie and Grandfather left but I stayed here to care for mother.
Mother soon got better so I went home to mother Smith. I cared for the twins there and soon Dr. Rush said that blacks could not get the disease so I decided to be a part of the free African American Society. He was not correct, but I did not get sick. After about a month or so Maddie found me and we reunited.
Soon after that we went back to the coffee house to help take care of the twins there was frost on the ground, and we knew we made it through the fever.
Who got snow in the house!
One day we had everyone over to eat and out of no where Maddie asked me to be her partner for the coffee house. I had to say no because people don't like blacks moving up the economical ladder. So we got lawyers involved so it would be offical.
Washington came back and so did the rest of the people. Philadelphia was thriving with people and the coffee house was up and running again.
