At the Merriman's house, Emma met Felicity and her sisters Rachel and Nancy, as well as her brother William.

William immediately challenged Emma to a game of checkers, which is his favorite game, and she started playing, concentrating very hard.

Nancy (or Nan, as her family calls her) came over to help plan strategy.

All of a sudden, Felicity came skipping into the living room.

"Father's back!"  She said, beckoning them all to follow her.

"Where did he go?"  Emma asked, curiously.

"He's just come back from England with new fabric for the general store, probably!"  Rachel said, trembling with excitement and smiling up at Emma.

"It IS fabric!  Look!"  Said Felicity, as Mr. Merriman walked into the front hall.

"Good day ladies!"  He said, hugging them all.  "I'm glad to be back!  Now see if you can get this fabric down to the general store."

"Alright then," Mrs. Merriman said, turning to William.  "Why don't you go hitch up the carriage, and you girls help me while he's at it."

"I would love to help!" Emma said, stepping forward.  "What can I do?"

"Do you like to cook, dear?"  Mrs. Merriman asked.

"Oh yes!  Just give me the recipe and i'll try my hardest."  Emma answered.

Then she went into the kitchen and made a beautiful
Chicken Pudding for Mrs. Merriman.

William headed straight outside and led Penny out of the stable and began to hitch her up to the carriage.  It was very complicated to do, with all it's buckles and loops and hooks and he prided himself on being the only one in the family trusted to do it, seeing as they had all forgotten how after they taught him.

As soon as it was all in the right place, he hopped right up into the driver's seat and took up the reins.

Next, he went inside to fetch the fabric.  When he came back out Felicity and Emma were already there.

They handed up all the fabric and stored it inside the carriage before climbing inside to get ready to go.

"Don't forget your hats, girls!"  Mrs. Merriman cried, as she ran out after them.  "You don't want to get an awful sunburn!"

"Mother, it's the middle of the winter,"  Felicity sighed, "we don't need hats!"

"Yes you do!  Just because it's wintertime doesn't mean the sun goes away!"

After a very pleasant ride through the neighborhood, the carriage pulled up in town square by the General Store.

Emma stepped gracefully out of the carriage and over to the store.  She looked up and saw the sign above the store.

Felicity jumped out and fished around in her pockets for the key.  Sticking it in the door, she opened it and went inside.

Together, her and Lissie brought in all the new fabric and put it in the fabric bin.

"This is lovely fabric, Felicity!"  Emma said, stroking it.  "I think you'll sell it very quickly.  Who do you think will buy this fabric?"

Felicity looked at the beautiful faded rose print.  "Oh the Parkington's, definitely.  They're always looking for those old romantic prints..."

Emma and Felicity waited on customers at the store for the rest of the day, before Emma had to leave with William in the carriage to be brought to her next host family- the Montoyas.
