Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Mahmud: May 21 — Many of the Believers’ Children Came to Visit ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Mahmud's Diary
May 21, 1912
New York, NY

In the morning and afternoon the Master delivered addresses at two public meetings. One consisted of admonitions from the Abha Beauty, and the other, owing to His impending journey to Boston, was a farewell address to the friends, promising them a speedy return.

This afternoon many of the believers’ children came to visit. He embraced them all with the utmost kindness and affection. He exhorted the friends to provide Bahá’í education and spirituality for these newborn trees of the Garden of Favor. To witness such meetings is a real joy. With great devotion, the young and old circled around ‘Abdu’l-Bahá like moths.
