Sightseeing and visiting with the friends of the Parsons

Later, we walked to the view side, and He said:”I want to sit here,” and so we all sat there in front of the house, Jeffrey coming out too after returning from motoring to the golf course with Mr. George D. Markham. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá lunched with us, took a rest upstairs, also Dr. Fareed, and we all three went to drive.

First we drove along the Jaffrey road to the farthest entrance of Mr. MacVeagh’s up to the beautiful Seaward view. I said: Mashriqu’l-Adhkar and He replied: Insha’llah![God Willing]! We then took winding roads through the MacVeagh woods and came out at length upon the main road. We drove around the lake, then to the boat house where ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and Dr. Fareed stopped while I went to the Club, seeing a few people who were still there after the usual Saturday meeting. I told Elise Cabot and two of her friends that they might go to see ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. Miss Rose Lunt also went, with Miss Carey, and I brought Mr. Markham with me. In talking to Mr. Markham, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was most interesting and amusing and Mr. Markham showed he was delighted.
