After thoroughly reading the information from the linked page, please read the following excerpt taken from Chapter 1 of The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925.

The practical thing was to find rooms in the city, but it was a warm season, and I had just left a country of wide lawns and friendly trees, so when a young man at the office suggested that we take a house together in a commuting town, it sounded like a great idea. He found the house, a weather-beaten cardboard bungalow at eighty a month, but at the last minute the firm ordered him to Washington, and I went out to the country alone. I had a dog — at least I had him for a few days until he ran away — and an old Dodge and a Finnish woman, who made my bed and cooked breakfast and muttered Finnish wisdom to herself over the electric stove.

Based on your reading, please write either a paraphrased paragraph or a summarized paragraph which appropriately and accurately explains the information contained in this excerpt. Your paragraph must also contain at least one relevant quote from the excerpt.
