VALENTIN, Louis (val-on-tang), French physician, born in Soulanges, France, 14 October, 1758; died in Nancy, France, 11 February, 1829. He was graduated in medicine by the faculty of Nancy in 1787, and in 1790 went to Santo Domingo as surgeon of a regiment. He gave particular attention to the diseases that were most prevalent in this colony and the means employed to combat them. When Cape Francais was burned in 1793, he lost all his property, his library, manuscripts, and a rich cabinet of anatomy which he had just completed, and escaped with great difficulty to the United States, where he met his wife, whom he had believed to be murdered. The French consul placed him in charge of the hospitals in Virginia for the reception of French sailors, and he remained in the United States until 1799, when he returned to France and settled at Nancy. He was a voluminous writer on medical subjects. Among his works are "Nemoire sur l'incompatibilite des dif-f6rents virus dans l'economie animale et sur leur innocuite par rapport au danger de la petite ve-role" (Cape Francais, 1792)" "Nemoire sur le traitement et l'extirpation des tumeurs du cou, etc." (Boston, 1792); "Coup d'oeil sur la culture de quelques vegetaux exotiques.., et sur quelques decouvertes faites dans les Etats-Unis d'Amerique" (Marseilles, 1808); "Coup d'oeil sur les differents modes de traiter le tetanos en Amerique " (Paris, 1811); and "Notice sur l'opossum et sur quelques animaux a bourses" (Marseilles, 1811).
