Miss Caldwell took ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Dr. Fareed and me around the lake and to our house in time for the 1/4 to 6:00 meeting. This day there was a large number of young people — Doris Russell-Rusonf, Eleanor Cabot, Elizabeth and Eleanor Jencks, George Henderson etc. After this meeting, Mirza Ali Akbar, Ali Kuli Khan’s Secretary, arrived.

At about 9:30 we all walked down to Day-Spring where we had a Persian dinner with ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. It was simple. He had pillau [Persian rice], and a dessert also of rice — also ice cream.
