On his death, he gave the property to the Salem Marine Society who still retains a clubhouse on top of the hotel.

Yale supplies many to the CIA. The CIA smuggle the opium. George Walker Bush who grew up near my township of Perkins in Maine knew the Forbes and my opinion that if drugs are illegal it is good for competition for those who continue business anyway. Bush began the war on drugs, not to get rid of them…
