Note that entries may contain comments, observations, and anecdotes ranging far beyond the specific elements of an architectural commission.  Then again, the entry might also be little more than a curt dismissal in passing.

A fragment of an early draft with pagination disconnected from later versions contains important information on the formation of the firm that is absent from the continuity of manuscript given below.
