Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Non-association with Covenant-breakers

Mahmud's Diary
November 15, 1912
New York, NY

Today He called on Mr. MacNutt and spoke to him in strong terms about his relationship with the Covenant-breakers and showed him a letter Mr. MacNutt had written to Chicago offering help to and praising Dr. Nutt, a friend of Kheiralla. The Master asked, ‘Is this your writing?’ Mr. MacNutt replied, ‘Yes, but my intention was something else.’ He tried to give a different angle to his purpose but could not. The Master was saddened about Mr. MacNutt but His purpose was to admonish and warn him against his own conduct.
