Mattie dear! what are you doing here?

On the way back to the coffee house Mattie thinks that she sees Eliza in the street. She calls to her but the women are gone in an instant. Mattie does not give up and puts Nell down. She yells for Eliza.... then one of the women turn around
Mattie is overjoyed to see Eliza again. Feelings come fuddling back
