Stories about 'Abdu'l-Bahá

Visiting a nearby boys’ Summer-School camp

Agnes Parsons' Diary

Mrs. John Gray and Miss Linberger both asked us to use their motors, so, having been asked by Dr. Charles Hanford Henderson to come to the camp [Marienfield Summer School, a summer camp for boys in Chesham, New Hampshire] on any day agreeable to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, we sent him word we would come this afternoon.

Going there ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Mirza Sohrab, and I were with Miss Linberger, and returning ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was with Mrs. Gray, Mrs. Ford, and Mirza Valiyu’llah Khan. After greeting us with many of the boys, Dr. Henderson took us to a big fire, then to an upper room where ‘Abdu’l-Bahá made an address. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá was interested in everything, was shown the view from an observation platform, then the boys’ sleeping places. Afterwards we had tea and just before leaving a drill was done by the boys. I forgot to say that a photograph was taken of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá with the boys, and many snapshots by the boys.
