22 April, 1912, Monday, Washington D.C.:

NOTE: “In his account Joseph Hannen explains: “Receptions were held at the home of Mrs. Parsons every afternoon at about 5:00 o’clock, from Monday to Friday, inclusive. The large parlor, seating 150, was crowded each afternoon, and the interest grew as the week advanced. Many persons prominent in social, official, and diplomatic circles were present, besides numbers of well-known men and women of literary and scientific attainments.” Hannen, ’Abdu’l-Bahá in Washington, D.C. p.7;  Agnes Parson’s Diary,©1996, Kalimát Press, Los Angeles, 1996, p. 23.
