I went back outside to fetch water for the children. I was so tired that I just past out on the ground outside. The next morning Silas woke me up I was cold but not for a summer gripe. When I looked around all I saw was sparkling grass. Then I knew what it was. IT'S THE FIRST FROST! When I went inside the coffee house I went straight for Eliza. when I found her I told about the ice and then I said "We need to take the children and the mattress too!" Then Eliza said " No they will get cold." Then I reminded her how hard it was the keep their fever down. After we took the kids outside they got better, but it did take time. A couple of weeks later I opened the coffee house and got Eliza to be my partner. Then Nathaniel started to help with some stuff at the coffee house. Then the next day Nathaniel ran into the coffee house to tell us that the president was back. Eliza let me go watch as he went down the street and there was a huge crowd was there. Then after the crowd had left the were some carts coming and one stopped in front of the coffee house. When an old looking woman stepped out I was shocked. The woman was mother! I ran to her and I didn't even look to see if anything was coming.
