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

literary men.

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.
