The notation on Dr. Robert Adair's obit :
"The Secretary at War has the gift of the surgeon generalship of the army ; and the Paymaster of the Forces appoints to the surgeoncy of Chelsea Hospital."
I believe that Robert Adair's father-in-law or bro-in-law, Keppel/Albemarle was at one time Sec. of War.
There was an official gov. record appointing Robert Adair to Chelsea Hospital.
Believe that I found John Adair, Surgeon, on the internet under "regiment or surgeon or admiralty".
