Inheriting a large fortune, he followed his taste for travel and adventure, and undertook, in 1796, an expedition to the provinces that are watered by the Napo, which were then credited with fabulous riches. He explored this country for three years and lived for several months among the Yumbo Indians, but, being unable to find any riches, crossed the Andes to Peru, and arrived in Lima in 1800. He afterward visited Chili, and resided several years in Buenos Ayres, but left that city in 1810 at the beginning of the movement for independence, and sailed for Martinique. He was captured by an English man-of-war and detained in Jamaica till 1814, and his papers were confiscated. He afterward fixed his residence in Fontainebleau.
