Farewell Reception: Introduction






On the evening of St. Michael's day, a large farewell reception was given
to 'Abdu'l-Baha in the hall of the Passmore Edwards' Settlement, which was
filled to its utmost capacity with representative people of every
profession, some coming from great distances.

On the platform surrounding 'Abdu'l-Baha were men of different shades of
thought, met to express their sympathy with the work and mission of their
great visitor. Professor Michael E. Sadler was in the chair.

The meeting began with the Lord's Prayer spoken by the entire assembly;
this was followed by the prayer for Unity of Baha'u'llah and a prayer of
the fifth Century, ascribed to Pope Gelasius. Professor Sadler then spoke
in words that will never be forgotten by those who heard them; and in his
address used a quotation from a Universal Prayer, which had been submitted
by an earnest Baha'i to 'Abdu'l-Baha, the year before in Egypt and which
had been completed by him and commended as one that could be used by
peoples of all faiths in the East and West.

The Chairman was followed by Sir Richard Stapley, Mr. Eric Hammond, Mr.
Claude Montefiore, Mrs. Stannard from Egypt, and others. As 'Abdu'l-Baha
left the hall, the poor people of the neighbourhood, crowded on the
pavement to see him and an eager-faced little lame girl on crutches was
specially brought to him.
