Visit To The Lord Mayor

At the express wish of the Lord Mayor, 'Abdu'l-Baha paid him a visit early

one morning at the Mansion House. The talk turned chiefly upon the social

conditions of great cities, and 'Abdu'l-Baha said that London was the best

regulated city he had seen.

He said: Every man walking in the street is free as if he were in his own

kingdom. There is a great spiritual light in London. The effort made for

justice is real and in this country the law is the same for the poor as

for the rich. He took great interest in hearing of the care that is taken

of prisoners as they leave jail, and spoke of the land being happy where

the magistrates are as fathers to the people.

Before 'Abdu'l-Baha left London, he went to an East-end hospital to visit

there a young writer lying seriously ill, who was very anxious to see him.
