a French priest, was born at Melun in 1752. Being curate of Boississe-la- Bertrand, near Melun, when the Revolution broke out, he embraced its principles with ardor; and having renounced the ecclesiastical career by a letter addressed to the National Convention (Nov. 4, 1793), and inserted in the Moniteur of that day, he married shortly after, and became compiler of the Journal des Campagnes. He worked also on the Courier Francais, which then appeared, but found small resources in these occupations. He dragged out a miserable existence until the Consulate, when he obtained a moderate employment in; the police, section of customs. Having lost this place upon the Restoration, he entered a printing-house as corrector, and died in poverty, Jan. 20, 1822, at Paris. We have of his works, Recueil d'hymnes philosophiques, civiques et moraux (Paris, 1793, 8vo). He left several manuscript works, entitled, L'Ennemi du sang: Raisonnons tous: Mon Epitaphe et mes Confessions. See Mahul, Ann. necrol.; Feller, Dict. Hist.
