After the Building Committee resolved not to move the Court and Committee Rooms, drawing 9 was presented by Soane with two other designs showing the proposed Barracks and a 'convenient location for Cash Book Offices' (Building Committee Minutes, 9 May 1805). Drawing 9 was approved. It shows a general layout of the Printing Office Court, as well as a preliminary design for the director's offices and the Long Passage (see separate schemes 3:10 and 3:13).
