April 30, 1913 At Kaiser Wilhelm II's hunting lodge

It appears as if I am a bit behind. Who can keep up with 'Abdu'l-Bahá?  Actually, we've been staying up day & night working on a review copy of the film. Finally, it is done.  Still, audio post production and final visual refinements await.  Will our journey ever be finished? 

Earl Redman writes: 

On 30 April Consul Schwarz had arranged for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to meet the Kaiser, Wilhelm II, at his hunting lodge near Tübingen. When they arrived, however, the king was not there. In the visitor’s book at the lodge, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá wrote: ‘The royal palace is not occupied, because I can not see the face of the king. The green meadow looks cut down because it is not adorned with the glorious figure of the queen’.[i]
