Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Mahmud: June 20 – Visiting friends in Montclair, New Jersey

Mahmud's Diary
June 20, 1912
Montclair, NJ

The Master went to a house rented for Him in Montclair. Since the weather in New York was hot and humid at this time, the Montclair friends had begged Him to visit. Mr. Edsall’s relatives were elated and grateful for the beloved Master’s visit. This servant told the Eastern friends that there was a possibility that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá would remain there to rest from His arduous journey and overcome His fatigue, which would alleviate the many troubles and hardships of the past.

That night the Master spoke of the Blessed Beauty’s stay in Baghdad and of His Declaration, about His teaching and educating the servants of God.
