At 4 o’clock, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá went with Dr. Fareed and Agnes Parsons to the Universalist Church. ‘There were reported to be over 1,000 persons in the church on this date, most of whom remained after the service to meet ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.’ ( Agnes Parson’s Diary, ©1996, Diary footnote #54, ).

Although having a full day, when a visit to the Library of Congress was mentioned, in order to see it lighted, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá said ”Let us go tonight.” With the cooperation of the Superintendent the building lights remained on and no doors were locked so that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá had an opportunity to see the building thoroughly.
