The Farewell






On the last morning of 'Abdu'l-Baha's stay in London many friends gathered
both at Cadogan Gardens and at the station to bid him farewell. An
impressive and interesting ceremony was performed at the house by a
Zoroastrian (a physician), who sent an elaborate telegram to some Parsis
in Bombay, saying: The Torch of Truth has been lighted again in the East
and the West by 'Abdu'l-Baha. Instructed by his brethren, this follower
of one of the most ancient religions in the world had brought with him a
sacred oil of a rare perfume, with which he anointed the head and breast
of 'Abdu'l-Baha, afterwards touching the hands of all present. He then
placed around 'Abdu'l-Baha's neck and shoulders an exquisite garland of
rose-buds and lilies.

The last glimpse which the friends had at Victoria Station was that of the
venerable face and form standing at the window, gazing out with a look of
benevolence and wonderful tenderness on those he was leaving.
