Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

‘Abdu’l-Bahá expresses admiration for Arthur Dodge and Hooper Harris

Mahmud's Diary
November 12, 1912
New York, NY

There was a gathering in the evening at the home of Mr. Kinney which was attended mostly by black people. At the meeting the Master likened the faith of Mr. [Arthur] Dodge to that of Peter and expressed His admiration for that sincere and true servant who was so firm in the Covenant. The Master showed similar kindness to Mr. [Hooper] Harris who was permitted to speak to the public gathering before the Master’s address. The Master’s talk was a confirmation of Mr. Harris’s speech, an explanation of the prophecies of the Book of Daniel concerning the Most Great Manifestation and the statement in the New Testament about the Promised One.
