Meeting Of Farewell To 'abdu'l-baha






September 29th, 1911.


Reprinted by kind permission, from the Christian Commonwealth of
Oct. 4th.


At the invitation of Mrs. Thornburgh-Cropper about four hundred and sixty
representative people met in the hall of the Passmore Edwards' Settlement,
Tavistock Place, last Friday evening to bid farewell to 'Abdu'l-Baha Abbas
on the eve of his departure for Paris. Arriving in London on Monday
evening, September the fourth, he has spent a happy and busy four weeks in
our midst. Except for a brief visit to Bristol last week he remained at
97, Cadogan Gardens. His time was mainly occupied in interviews with
people who wish to meet him. These included not a few whose names are
household words in this country, and some travelled long distances to see
him.

A beautiful spirit prevailed on Friday evening. The atmosphere was very
different from that of an ordinary meeting or religious gathering.
Everyone present was enriched by the lofty spiritual tone of the
proceedings; the notes struck were all in the direction of Brotherhood,
Unity, and Peace. While a report of the speeches would give a very
inadequate idea of the effect produced, yet they were so well-conceived,
so sincere, so exquisitely phrased as to be all worthy of reproduction.
Among others Amir Ali Siyyid wrote regretting his inability to be present,
and Archdeacon Wilberforce sent affectionate greetings.

After the Lord's Prayer and prayers for Unity of Baha'u'llah and Gelasius
(fifth Century), Professor Michael Sadler spoke as follows:--
