The follow is a chapter scanned from Jean Overton-Fuller's The Comte de Saint-Germain. Last Scion of the House of Rakoczy.
Many people believe that the Count died February 27, 1784 in a state of poverty. I think this is incredibly wrong and that this is the official date of his faked death (with the help of Charles of Hesse). What you will find in the text (just click to enlarge them) is that he left behind some clothes, a small amount of money, some toiletries, and two pistols. There are no notebooks or journals listed, no music or instruments, no gems, no art supplies (he was known to paint), and no collected items from his travels.
