In the afternoon the friends gathered at the home of Mr. Harris, each one eager and delighted to see the Master and to listen to His words. While He was leaving His residence, some school children saw the Master and rushed towards Him. They asked, ‘Who is this man who looks like Christ?’ Miss Juliet Thompson spoke to them outside the house about the Cause and the life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. They asked to meet Him and they were invited to come to Mr. Kinney’s home, where ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spent most of His days, the following Sunday.
