Faubourg St. Germaine.
At this place, John Ricord, worn out by constant travel, died
on March 26, 1861, aged forty-eight years, six months, and
twenty-one days. It is said that his body was buried in Pere La-
chaise Cemetery, but certainly it is not buried in the tomb of
Dr. Philippe Ricord.
Thus ended the career of a man who traveled to the six con-
tinents of the globe and to many of the islands of the Pacific.
His ability was substantial, and there is little doubt that had he
settled down in one community he might have become a man
of great prominence and significance. Robert C. Wyllie summed
up his career in a letter written to George Fisher, one of Ricord's
colleagues in Texas: "I may safely assert that his fame ... will
rest in the works, which he left behind him, whatever his enemies
may say to the contrary."
