"Cold Spring, ten miles South of the courthouse, is a thickly settled agricultural neighborhood, containing about 40 houses within the circle of a mile. It derives its name from an excellant spring of cold water flowing up through the salt marsh, which is much frequented by sojourners at Cape Island."
