Abdu’l-Bahá went “to the estate of Phoebe Hearst, at her invitation, and remained for two nights. Mahmud observed, “Some of the relatives of the lady were also present. As there were people of different dispositions, the discourses of the Beloved were brief and full of wisdom according to the exigencies of the occasion. Many important ideas were couched in condensed sentences so that they made the maximum of effect with the minimum of words. “
