November 11, 1912: The Week Ahead

‘ABDU’L-BAHÁ LEFT the nation’s capital at 9 a.m. this morning on a train bound for Baltimore, arriving at Camden Station shortly afterward. He and his party checked into the Hotel Rennert to rest before making their way to Baltimore’s First Unitarian Church where he is scheduled to speak later today. He will step back onto his train at 3 p.m. for the final leg of his long eastern trip.

In the week ahead, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá returns to New York after almost four months away, the Progressive Movement reaches a triumphant climax with Woodrow Wilson’s aggressive reform agenda, and, New York’s first big Mafia trial comes to a close, after filling the city’s newspapers with sensational gangland stories for two months.

    I am sitting in the Baltimore First Unitarian Church along with 400 people and in a moments we will hear the address Abdul-Bahá gave exactly 100 years ago in this spot. Wish you were all hear.
