Dr. Marshall Spring Prominent Mass. Physician Who Attended Wounded Militia at the Battle of Lexington
January 15, 1795-Dated, Manuscript Document Signed, MARSHALL SPRING, Massachusetts Revolutionary War Tory, Very Fine.
This rare Manuscript Receipt for "attendance and medical advice" for Captain John Flag[g] a veteran soldier of the Revolution, dated Watertown, Massachusetts, January 15, 1795. It is Signed, MARSHALL SPRING, and endorsed as payment for a separate transaction on reverse, measures about 3.35" x 7.25", well written on clean laid period paper. A very rare and historic signature.

MARSHALL SPRING (1741-1818) was a prominent Massachusetts physician who had graduated Harvard in 1762 and maintained an extensive medical practice in Watertown and the surrounding area. He treated wounded soldiers on the Village Green at Lexington on April 19th, 1775, yet he became an avowed British Tory loyalist after American Independence was declared. However, his medical services were so indispensable to the community, he was allowed to stay during the Revolutionary War rather than to be banished as many Tories had been.
