grandpa, there is a fever going around in our city of Philadelphia and it is killing people left and right
but your mother has the fever and we have the fled the city before you and i get sick as well
I know mattie we have to be very carful about this situation
mattie had just got sick with the fever by breathing in the germ filled air but luckily her grandfather didn't get sick but he is coughing a little and is very hot due to the very warm weather and mattie has to walk at least a mile to go search for food for herself and her grandfather.but mattie soon passes out due to the hot weather but when her grandfather realizes that she is missing he goes to go find her and carry her to the nearest nurse.
the nurse clears her of the fever and luckily her grandfather didn't have the fever it was just a cold and in that time the fever was gone in the city of philadelphia and they could return back to their friends and family who have been wondering where they were and then live their lives normally again
