He then returned to Paris, and continued to practice and teach his profession; and he was again made Surgeon-in-Chief of the army, and Chief Surgeon of the Invalides. In the Revolution of July, 1830, which overthrew Charles X, he directed personally the care of the wounded. A year later, at the invitation of the King of Belgium, he visited all the army 'hospitals of that country and suggested regulations and improvements. In 1834, he made a tour through southern France, visiting his birth-place. He was received with the greatest honor by all the citizens, and members of the Imperial Guard flocked from long distances to see him. At his birth-place, he found the Abbe dc Crasset, his old instructor, still living. In 1842, he was sent to visit the army in Algeria. He inspected it carefully, and then returned toward home;but when at Lyons, he was taken ill; and he died there on the 25th of July, 1842. _ We find an interesting picture of Larrey in his old age at Paris in " A Memoir of J.
