I am John Murray Forbes

Railroads…

You might think I made my fortune from railroads. In fact I made my fortune in Russell & Co. selling opium to China. My uncle’s Thomas and James Perkins started the company and sold it to Samuel Russell when I ran the firm. We were responsible for over 80% of the youth of China being addicted at the time. Samuel Russell was a cousin of William Russell who started the Skull & Bones with Alphonso Taft. They purchased my uncle Thomas’s land to build their crypt on. John Forbes Kerry would be my descendant and bonesman. His friend George Herbert Walker Bush, bonesman, would hear our family story from Thomas saying making drugs illegal is good for business because it limits competition. Bush will be the person who started the war on drugs.
