The Gravesite of Thornton Chase

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, when visiting Thornton Chase's grave site in 1912, said this of the first American Baha'i:

"During his lifetime he bore many trials and vicissitudes, but he was very patient and long-suffering. He had a heart most illuminated, a spirit most rejoiced; his hope was to serve the world of humanity. . . ."
