Oct. 21 ?The Mizner house brought back memories. We moved to Palm Beach County in 1958. One summer when I was in high school, I worked for Mrs. Willford Leach on Saturdays as a gardener. They lived in a Mizner house at Ocean Blvd and Royal Palm Way. My grandfather had taught Mr. Leach how to sail as youngsters in Canada. The house and grounds were magnificent: A walled garden with a saltwater pool which was lined with Italian patterned tiles. There was a pool house, an English pub on the grounds and a four-laned bowling alley. The house had a cross-beamed dining room ceiling brought over from England (I think) beautiful fire places and covered porches.  She paid me 50 cents an hour, fed me a hot cooked (southern) lunch and all the coke I could drink (she was a Coca Cola heiress). I would have worked for free, just to have the experience of spending time there. There is a condo on their property now. What a loss.? Martha Horton
