Dreamt last night our house was situated in a marsh like place – I was younger

I went down under the house. Here it seemed as if I was viewing the cellar as it was before the new part of the house was added on – but instead of a cellar under the whole house – they were large & dark, with numerous damp posts to hold the house up – at the head of the old cellar way a spring gushed forth; it seemed as if formerly this was our source of drinking water –
