Old Pennypack Baptist Church.
BY REV. S. F. HOTCHKIN, Bustleton, PA.
Mr. Dungan built a meeting-house. In 1770 nothing remained of the
Cold Spring church but a grave-yard (vide Edwards). Nothing belonging
to his church edifice or cemetery now remains to mark a spot so full of
interest to Pennsylvania Baptist except some foundations which can be
distinctly traced across and on one side of a road which passes by the
celebrated Cold Spring. The church-site is two miles from Tullytown.
Bucks county, and about two rods from the pike leading to it, and the
same distance from the toll-gate on the Tullytown road."

With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan - to do all which may achieve a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
