  1. Letter from Graham Binny (Scottish lawyer), 8 Jan. 1851, requesting more family information to prove Morris' claim concerning his share of the Morgan Estate in Scotland. The second half of this letter written by Samuel Hackett explains to Morris that he must hurry with the required information as it is "easier to interrupt the proceedings of a rival claimant" than change a final decision.
  2. Letter from Graham Binny, 28 Nov. 1851, updating Morris on pre-trial preparations. The second part of the letter, 19 Nov. 1851, from Thomas Bett (likely employed by Binny) gives recollections of people regarding the family relations of the Morgans in an attempt to provide links to Morris).
