Notes:
Farther north along the Ocean, is an immense house, designed by Addison Mizner, which now belongs to Mrs. Hugh Dillman. For Mrs. Dillman, Mr. Mizner aded the beautiful cloister shown in this picture. Below the great windows on the east, the waves roll in to break on the beach immediatly below the cloister. None of us will forget the cloister's "dedication" when, on a night of full moon, an enchanting Hungarian orchestra played for us here with only the moon an a few medieval candles for light while below us stretched a silver sea.
