June 3rd in Baha'i History

1912 - Abdul-Baha in America

Mr Penshoe, a cabinet member of the United States government, invited `Abdu'l-Bahá to Milford [his estate outside the city]. For a day and a night many prominent statesmen and dignitaries of the Republic were enraptured, fascinated by the Master. (Mahmud's Diary)

1952 - Teaching is.... the head cornerstone of all Bahá'í service,

". . . Teaching is of course the head cornerstone of all Bahá'í service, but successful teaching is dependent upon many factors, one of which is the development of a true Bahá'í way of living and the fulfillment of responsibilities which we have incurred."

(From a letter dated 3 June 1952 written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi to an individual believer)  (Compilations, The Individual and Teaching - Raising the Divine Call, p. 31)
