Commentary: Neilson drew the second floor plans of both Pavilion I and Pavilion II on the same sheet. The second floor plan of Pavilion II depicted here resembles the one drawn by Jefferson on 02-01 with the exception of the stairs and the stair hall. Neilson also has eliminated the doorway between the two front rooms as shown on 02-01. (JML)
