'ABDU'L-BAHÁ IN AMERICA: AGNES PARSONS' DIARY

Edited by Richard Hollinger, with a foreword by Sandra Hutchinson

Published for the first time! This is the intimate day-by-day account kept by Agnes Parsons of 'Abdu'l-Bahá's stay in Washington, D.C. and in Dublin, New Hampshire, during His journey to America in 1912. Her diary is supplemented here with passages from Mahmud's Diary, taken from a new translation corrected by the Bahá'í World Center. 

     Mrs. Parsons kept meticulous notes on 'Abdu'l-Bahá's activities and lectures as He stayed at her house in Washington, and at her summer home in Dublin. She provides us with unique insight into His thoughts and private moments. Now we see the Master with new eyes, as He meets with the notables of Washington society, advises her on the care of her children, and speaks to large gatherings of seekers in her home. Illustrated, with photos of 'Abdu'l-Bahá.

From the Back Cover:

The promise I made thee, Abdul-Baha wrote to Agnes Parsons, I will certainly carry out. I will come to thy city and to vist thee I will come to thy house. Rest thou assured. And so, upon arrival in Washington, D.C. on April 12, 1912, Abdul-Baha lived in the Parsons home for about three weeks. He was later the honored guest of the Parsons family in their summer house in Dublin, New Hampshire, for about a month.

Published for the first time, this is certainly the most detailed and accurate portrayal of Abdul-Baha's daily life during his journey to America. The diary is fully annotated and generously supplemented (in footnotes) with parallel accounts from Mahmud's Diary.
