Família, amigos e afeto

Updated: Dec 15, 2022

A carta de Pedro de Saisset ao irmão D. Pedro II, enviada em janeiro de 1865, jamais foi respondida. O imperador do Brasil guardou um grande silêncio em relação a ele e a seus filhos. Pedro aceitou aquela decisão e não forçou o contato, estava evidente que a sua presença era indesejada. Mas se essa rejeição causou-lhe alguma frustração, o problema foi logo superado. Afinal, a vida de empresário na Califórnia oferecia muito mais futuro do que uma aventura no Rio de Janeiro, onde seria apenas o irmão bastardo do imperador. Ele ficou exatamente onde estava, construiu a sua própria família e obteve muito sucesso nos negócios.


Family, friends and affection


Pedro de Saisset's letter to his brother D. Pedro II, sent in January 1865, was never answered. The Emperor of Brazil kept a great silence towards him, his wife and children. Pedro accepted that decision and did not force the contact, it was evident that his presence was unwanted, but if such rejection caused him any frustration, the situation was fast overcome. After all, the life as a businessman in California offered much more future than an adventure in Rio de Janeiro where he would probably just be seen as the bastard brother of the Emperor. Instead of moving to Brazil, he stayed right where he was, built his own family and became very successful in business.
