#96 – 100 Years Ago – In Washington D. C.’Abdu’l-Bahá gave a talk and visited the Library of Congress

21 April, 1912, Sunday, Washington D.C.: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá walked at eleven o’clock to Studio Hall on Connecticut Avenue where He gave an address.(see page 15 ) Agnes Parson’s Diary, ©1996, Kalimát Press, Los Angeles, 1996

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.
