Drowned in a shipwreck.

And all gossip about the hotel

started at that time.

Jethro De Lapoer was never

the same afterword.

He followed her to the grave

just a few days after the tragedy.

How did he die?

They found him below their balcony

from what I heard.


No one knows if he...

if he fell, or what happened.

It's too bad crabs can't talk.

Just a minute, I have

something for you.

It came with the will.

I think it's from

Jethro De Lapoer himself.

Would you at least think about

what I told you, Edward?

Sell the property, or turn it

into something more upbeat.

The only thing living in the hotel

is a lot of ugly memories.

Goodbye, Miss Gelmore.

Sixty years.

I am writing under an

appreciable strain...

since by tonight I shall be no more.

I can bear my pain no longer...

and shall cast myself

from this window...

onto the razor-like reefs below...

sharpened by thousands of storms.

If I can't find redemption...

at least there'll be oblivion.

It all happened when I returned

from a long tiring voyage.

My wife Emma...

my 8 year old son, Yon came with me.

They were my pride.

After weeks at sea we were finally back.

The New England coast was in sight

when the storm took us by surprise.

In less time than it takes

to write these words...

our ship was driven onto the

rocks at the foot of the cliffs...

we'd been watching for days.

It took hours for the

help to reach us.

By God, this one's alive!

He's alive!

My God!

There, there.

My wife.

My-my wife, my son.

Calm down, Jethro.

You have a high fever.

That's right.

What are you doing?

Don't move, we have to

let all the poor blood out.

Oh, no!



Let it be known by all,

from here forth...

let any God who takes from me...

my only love and progeny...

is no longer welcome in my home!
