December 24, 1912 Dinner guest; ladies giving orders

Earl Redman writes: 

"‘Abdu’l-Bahá was a guest of Lady Blomfield for dinner on Christmas Eve. When He sat down to dinner on that night, ‘He said, playfully, that He was not hungry, but He had to come to the dinner table because Lady Blomfield was very insistent; two despotic monarchs of the East had not been able to command Him and bend His will, but the ladies of America and Europe, because they were free, gave him orders.'"
