June 2nd in Baha'i History

1912 - Abdul-Baha in America

2 June 1912 Talk at Church of the Ascension Fifth Avenue and Tenth Street, New York

Through the pastor, Dr Grant, some in the audience requested permission to ask some questions, which was granted. Everyone who wished wrote a question on a piece of paper and submitted it through an usher. Through an interpreter, the questions were translated and the answers given to the inquirers. Oh, that the Eastern friends could have been in these churches and gatherings in the West to see with their own eyes the beauty and glory of their Master! They would have rejoiced in perceiving that which no spoken or written words can adequately describe. (Mahmud's Diary)
