NINE DAYS OF REST and recuperation. That’s what awaited ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in Montclair, New Jersey, twenty miles northwest of New York. He had remarked that the heat and humidity of the big city, along with its incessant crowds, were impairing his health. Today, he’s strolling in the park with friends..
Here at 239 Days in America we thought we’d give ourselves a day of rest as well. We’ll be back first thing Monday morning.
In the week ahead: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá contrasts the influence of Christ and Napoleon, an agonizing moment from his childhood, coverage of the 1912 Democratic Convention in Baltimore, and a “Unity Feast” in West Englewood, New Jersey.
