Cameron' s Application to Congress.

Philadelphia Jail, February 7, 1776.

Mr˙ Cameron would be glad to acquaint the gentlemen of the Congress, that he was lately brought before the Committee, who referred him to the Congress for obtaining parole; in the hope that the gentlemen of the Congress will believe he acted from principle, and grant him the same enlargement they have given others of His Majesty' s officers, and on such honourable terms, he will engage to be equally bound.
