Days In London
During 'Abdu'l-Baha's stay in Cadogan Gardens people arrived all day and
every day, from early morning to nightfall, hoping for the privilege of
seeing him and of hearing him talk. Many were the gatherings round the
board of that hospitable house and hundreds of people were made welcome.
Many came without introduction and no one was refused. Among them were
clergy of various denominations, members of Parliament, magistrates, and
The visitors were not only English; numerous Persians had journeyed from
Tihran and other Eastern cities to meet freely one who had so long been
withheld from them by his captivity.
The editor of a journal printed in Japan, altered his return route to
Tokyo in order that he might spend the night near 'Abdu'l-Baha, and a late
visit was paid by a Zoroastrian physician of Bombay, on the eve of his
return to India.
