The office Day Book entry for 9 June 1800 has 'W R Cartwright Esqre / View of the Anti Room / ½ day Gandy'. It would be remarkable if Gandy made the drawing in half a day and, in fact, the first entry for Gandy working on a 'Perspective View of / the Anti Room' appears on 19 May 1800 and is followed by 13 similar entries finishing on 9 June 1800, that is fourteen and half days work.
