"Man called Morris. Isaac Morris."

If the name "Isaac Morris" seems familiar, there's good reason. The mysterious Mr. Morris was mentioned previously on pages 6 ("Mr. Isaac Morris had shaken his little bald head very positively. 'No, Captain Lombard, the matter rests there.'") and 25 ("Funny it was, thought Fred [Narracot], that he'd never yet set eyes on Owen--or his Missus either. Never been down here yet, he hadn't. Everything ordered and paid for by that Mr. Morris.")
