Mr Monkey scurried up the stairs to the first floor. He found that this was one room running the full length of the house but there were two movable partitions, each with two doors, that could be swung across the room. Depending on what Dr Johnson wanted to do, his first floor could be one, two or three rooms. When Mr Monkey visited it was just the one big room, with a collection of paintings related to Dr Johnson at one end and a parlour at the other. He found a stained glass picture of Dr Johnson which seemed to be based on a painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds and was hung in a bow window facing Gough Court.
