AUGUST 19th

THY DESIRE TO SERVE Green Acre is in reality a very important matter. This name (Green Acre) must appear with all its significant meaning, that is, Green Acre must become the reflection of the plain of Acca, and attain to the utmost verdancy, greenness and artistic beauty. Its charms and wonder lie in this,—that it may become the center of the Bahá’ís and the cry of Ya Bahá’u’l-Abhá (O Thou the Glory of the Most Glorious!) be raised from all its direction.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá quoted in The Bahá’í Yearbook, Vol. I, p. 89
