en route to Denver

Abdu’l-Bahá took tea in the dining car. Áqa ‘Ali-Akbar Nakhjavani remarked that it seemed the Master was happier because He was going towards the East. The Master replied, ‘Yes, my greatest happiness is to be near the Holy Shrine.’ Looking out of the window, He continued: ‘I love this plain because it is so much like the plain of ‘Akka.’

The Master then dictated replies to His letters.
