MOFRAS, Eugene Duflot de (mo-frah), French explorer, born in Toulouse, 5 July, 1810; died in Paris in 1851. He entered the diplomatic service in 1828 as attached to the French mission at Madrid, and while in that city made the acquaintance of Martin de Navarrete, who enraptured him by his descriptions of South America. Mofras solicited a mission to that country, and in 1889 was sent to Mexico to study the political situation, with orders to go afterward to California, Oregon, and Russian America. For four years he explored those countries, and also visited the principal cities of the United States. On his return to France he published " Fragments d'un voyage en Californie" (Paris, 1843) ; "Exploration de l'Oregon et des Californies" (2 vols., 1844);" Mendoza, viceroi de la Nouvelle Espagne, et Navarrete, notices biographiques " (2 vols., 1845); and " L'Ordgon, le Mexique et les Etats-Unis," in which the author compares these countries, and predicts a great future for the United States (2 vols., 1846).
