"But he fell off a ladder and died of a broken neck two months after the coffeehouse opened. That's when grandfather moved in."
  • Grandfather lives in the chamber. He has a pet parrot named King George. Grandfather also served in a war with General Washington. "Grandfather sleeps in the chamber across from my room."
  • Mattie and Grandfather end up leaving the coffee house when Mother gets diagnosed with yellow fever. They get a group of people and take a wagon up to The Ludington's Farm. "The dry road was rutted from the wagons and carriages which had fled before us."
  • Mattie and Grandpa then get kicked off of the wagon when guards approach the wagon and think that Grandpa has yellow fever. The farmers say that they don't know them and kick them off. "They only rode in the back the last mile or so. They was walking and we picked them up."
  • In conclusion Grandfather has a good relationship with Mattie. They are now in Bush Hill and we will be leaving soon for home. Grandfather also has bad heart conditions... "Told me his heart was acting up in the heat and had a bad cough."
