About: John Good was a man who heard Abdu’l-Baha speak at the Bowery Mission in New York in 1912. From his boyhood he had spent his life in one prison or another and in one he had behaved so rebelliously that they had hung him up by his thumbs.” The main material for this characterization is derived from The Diary of Juliet Thompson and an account by Kate Carew for the New York Tribune, published in 239 Days: `Abdu'l-Bahá's Journey in America, and other accounts of `Abdu'l-Bahá's visits to New York. Good references passages from `Abdu'l-Bahá's talk at the Bowery Mission, which can be found in The Promulgation of Universal Peace.
