Fever, 1793 Women and Femininity Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

"I have plenty of ideas," I assured her. "What if we baked small cakes and delivered them to the State House with a handbill advertising our new wares?"Eliza frowned."How many cakes? The price of sugar is still high. How about apple bread instead? That's cheaper to make."Nathaniel cleared his throat. "I could paint a sign that you could put out front. I could make a design for the handbill, too." (28.15-28.18)


Eliza, Matilda, and Nathaniel consult about plans for the coffeehouse. Notice that Nathaniel is a part of the process, but he's only one part. Matilda has both a job and a boyfriend. They are both intertwined.
