May, 1913 Back in Paris

Earl Redman writes: 

 During His final visit to Paris, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stayed at the Hotel Baltimore. His travels had greatly weakened Him and He was sometimes unable to attend meetings in the homes of the Bahá’ís. Still, He entertained visitors in His hotel room. During a luncheon, He could not sit at the table for long and had to retire to His room. On another day, tired though He was, He called Siyyid Asadu’lláh and, with a laugh in His voice, told him to fear God and get Him a cup of coffee. At one point He said, The Blessed Perfection has trained me to shoulder the burdens of others, not to put mine on others’ shoulders’.[i]

It might be a different world if we all could do this! 

ah, if only there were more details about these days!  Who will tackle Mahmúd's translation, vol. 2 of his diary?   We NEED it!
