up the iced lemonade into paper cups for the children and all got a prasad drink. He also gave candy to each child, then to all of us, tossing it in his familiar manner. He left about 3 p.m. and the children went for rides on the lake in the Venetian gondola.

As Baba entered the Barn everyone stood and cried, "Avatar Meher Baba, Ki Jai!" while Baba is carried in his special chair, designed for him by Harry Kenmore, by the stalwart dancers. It was raining hard and Baba greeted us with, "Fine weather today! It is my mood reflected. You have no idea how I suffered last night. This morning I am very happy. I want you all to take care of your health. Don't get colds. One will catch it from the other; all will get it and then it will come to met! At the sahavas in India, devotees came from all over India, and some came with the flu, especially the first group. All were happy to be with me and to participate in the sahavas. There were some who sneezed and coughed and it started spreading through the camp. The latter days passed off very well."
"A cable has been sent to Francis Brabazon, and we have sent a cable to India informing Mehera that I am leaving but on the 30th. But Lud and Ned are not certain about it―or about anything!
"Last night was unbelievable. This morning, despite the weather, I feel very happy. Directly after our session in the Barn today, I will go to my house. There is a group of women I want there between 1 and 1:30. After they leave my house, all the rest of the ladies may join me there. So today till 4 no one should leave the Center. Tomorrow Margaret Craske's group of dancers will give a performance. The day after tomorrow Mike Loftus will arrange a program by the men. On the 28th, I invite all the men to my house. The 29th is reserved for packing. The afternoon is a holiday for all. I may come to the Barn, to the beach . . . Is it clear to all?"
Baba told Dr. Kenmore to look after Filis. He said, "There is no remedy for my pain, but I feel happy." Ruth White came late, and Baba asked who would tell her about the program. Then he inquired, "Who did not sleep well last night?" Several people gave reasons such as thinking of Baba or not feeling well. Several children also said they did not sleep well. Baba continued, “The children are not well. Too much ice cream, and they dreamt others were gnawing them." Baba then asked, "Who did sleep well?" Hands
