Dr. Peters in 1733 was appointed physician extraordinary to the king, and in 1739 he succeeded Dr. Hollings as physician-general to the army. He was elected physician to St. George’s hospital 28th April, 1735, and resigned his office there (probably on account of ill-health) in February, 1746. He was Censor in 1744; but indisposition obliging him to go into the country, Dr. Reeve was nominated in his place 8th April, 1745. His name disappears from the list in 1746.
