The Petition of Lt Leonard Miller, humbly showeth. That whereas. I have been constantly in the service of the United States, since the Commencement of Hostilities, between Great Britain and these States. and should still rejoice in the same was it not for the situation of my Family: which Utterly forbids it. Which situation they have been reduced too, by my being in the service. So most humbly pray for a discharge from the service. Relying on your Excellencies Wisdom and Benevolence—shall as in duty bound ever Pray.
