"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?"
"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.
