Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

‘Abdu’l-Bahá leaves Chicago

Mahmud's Diary
September 17, 1912
Chicago, IL

Mirza ‘Ali-Akbar Nakhjavani, who had been granted permission to accompany ‘Abdu’l-Bahá on His journey to California, arrived from Malden, joining Mr. Fujita, the Japanese, and the other servants. The train left Chicago at 10:00 a.m. Many of the friends had gathered at the railway station and surrounded the Master, begging for divine confirmations, blessings and assistance to render services to the Cause of God.

Although the air was cool and the train was clean and free of dust, still ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was tired and weak.
