an Oriental traveler, was born March 28, 1787. His researches as a pioneer explorer of Oriental countries were patient and protracted, and, though not able to sink his shafts as deep as Layard and other modern explorers, his labors are equally worthy of regard. Even as scientists have been supplanted by after discoveries, so the time may come when Wilkinson and Layard, and Schliemann and Cesnola, may be outdone by future explorers. The works of Rich are entitled, Memoires sur les Ruines de Babylon (1812): Narrative of a Residence in Koordistan (1836). He died Oct. 5, 1821. (W.P.S.)
