r that he opened a small shop in a building next the bridge, on the west side of Main Street. He did not succeed in this; but he bore his poverty with a hero's resolution to conquer it; and conquer he did. When first a candidate for Governor in 1816, Medford gave two hundred and thirty-eight votes for him, and twenty-eight for Mr. Dexter. More than twenty-eight votes against him were never given in Medford during the seven years he was Governor. The uniformity of his example in attending ed the enemies' lines at Saratoga, and served with honor to the end of the war. He was appointed Marshal of the District of Massachusetts by President Washington; and, after filling several important civil and military offices, he was, in the year 1816, chosen Governor of the Commonwealth, and discharged the duties of that station for seven successive years to general acceptance. He was a kind and skilful physician; a brave and prudent officer; a wise, firm, and impartial magistrate; a true pat
vented from returning to Medford solely by ill health. These acts of oppression, as viewed by him, did not weaken his attachment to this town; for in his will, made in London in 1779, he bequeathed generously to the clergymen of Medford, to the church, and the schools. Many valuable tokens he left to friends in Boston and to the town of Worcester. His daughter Elizabeth, who married the second Sir William Pepperell, died on her passage to England, in 1775. Her husband died in London, in 1816, aged seventy. Although Colonel Royal's property in Medford was confiscated in 1778, it was kept together, and well guarded by officers appointed by the Judge of Probate. By the act of 1777, the General Court empowered the Judge of Probate to nominate agents to take charge of the estates of absentees, with full power to keep and improve the same. Colonel Royal was an exception to the great body of royalists; and, although the General Court dealt with his property as with that of a volunt
His very acute sensibilities must have made him most acceptable in a sick-chamber; while in surgical cases they may have been a hinderance. On the election of Dr. Brooks to the office of governor, he resigned his medical practice to his pupil and friend,-- Dr. Daniel Swan, of Medford,--who graduated at Harvard College in 1803. He first entered on practice at Brighton, in 1808, where for eight years he had all the success he anticipated. He was invited by the inhabitants of Medford, in 1816, to become their physician; and, having obeyed the call, he has practised nearly forty years as the established physician of the place. Very early he turned his attention to homoeopathy; and, as soon as he could procure the books to examine it scientifically, he became a convert to its principles. His practice did not much diminish on this account; and he may be said almost to have carried the town with him to his new faith. He thinks his success has been much greater under the new system.
