I suffered typhoid poisoning as Speaker of the House defending Andrew Jackson’s Bank War after he visited Stephen White of Salem.

Heroin Epidemic Started with Me

Thomas Perkins Opium Dealer

I was a slave trader up to the Haitian Slave Revolt. Then I worked with a cousin who was a minister to Turkey for the crown who provided me with opium to sell to Canton in China. I was mostly responsible for 80% of the youth addictions in China. My Forbes nephews ran my opium empire before one of them got into railroads like me.

I am Henry Clay

I was one of the three most powerful senators, but you don’t remember me

I first came to Salem to advise a rope maker on the advantages of hemp. Once in town I met John Quincy Adams and became his Secretary of State. I also met Daniel Webster who was one of the Triumphant of senators with me. We plotted and got away with assassinating 3 presidents trying to make the third national bank.
