Robert Morris drafted letters to William Livingston, addressed to Morriston [Morristown], and William Scudder, addressed to Shrewsbury. William Livingston wrote an ordinance to hold the Supreme Court at Princeton. Robert Morris asked both recipients for the ordinance to include a county, either Middlesex or Somerset, so that a sheriff can call for a grand jury.
