A Loving Farewell Greeting






After leaving London and during his two months stay in Paris, 'Abdu'l-Baha
frequently sent back messages to his English friends, some of whom
journeyed over to take advantage of the conferences there. On the eve of
his departure for Alexandria, he gave the following admonitory farewell to
the people of England and France.

Work, he said unceasingly, for the day of Universal Peace. Strive
always that you may be united. Kindness and love in the path of service
must be your means.

I bid a loving farewell to the people of France and England. I am very
much pleased with them. I counsel them that they may day by day strengthen
the bond of love and amity to this end,--that they may become the
sympathetic embodiment of one nation.--That they may extend themselves to a
Universal Brotherhood to guard and protect the interests and rights of all
the nations of the East,--that they may unfurl the Divine Banner of
justice,--that they may treat each nation as a family composed of the
individual children of God and may know that before the sight of God the
rights of all are equal. For all of us are the children of one Father. God
is at peace with all his children; why should they engage in strife and
warfare among themselves? God is showering down kindness; why should the
inhabitants of this world exchange unkindness and cruelty?

I will pray for you that you may be illumined with the Light of the
Eternal.
