Phillipe's sisters tried to intercede with their father on his behalf.
Old Mr. Hacker was furious,"First my best friend from Spain's daughter, then HER, and who knows how many housemaids...I am giving you no choice. You will marry Carolena and together you will be banished to our Hacienda in the Americas! You have 2 days to pack your belongings. I have secured you a post in the New Mexico territories" and he strode from the room.
"I will never return!" screamed Phillipe in fury!
Everyone looked shocked... the Americas...
