Pennypacker of Philadelphiaholds that stone was used as building-materialin Northern Delaware and Southern Pennsyl-vania not only because suitable building stonewas plentiful, but because also there was lime-stone to furnish cheap mortar.

When William Penn, half a centurylater, won his noble domain of Pennsylvania,to which was added what we now call Delaware,he of all men, inherited the ancient quarrel ofthe Calverts and the Dutch over the ownershipof the Peninsula above the Virginia line.
