Interviewer: Were you involved, in some way, in writing material about Coral Gables or doing something...

Marjorie: I did a booklet for George Merrick at one time when he was building Coral Gables.  That's the only thing I did.

Interviewer: I see.  What was in that booklet?

Marjorie: Oh, descriptions about how wonderful it was to live in Coral Gables.  It was a sales pitch.  They were selling lots in Coral Gables.  I'm not too proud of it.

Interviewer: Oh!  (laughs)

Marjorie: I don't feel I was, I was a little bit off my beat at that time.
