Recipe: Virginia Brown Bread

One pint of corn meal; pour over enough boiling water to thoroughly scald it; when cool add one pint of light, white Bread sponge, mix well together, add one cupful of molasses, and Graham flour enough to mold; this will make two loaves; when light, bake in a moderate oven one and a half hours.
