On May 20th, Baba went sightseeing by car around the city with the mandali and saw the Empire State Building. He met many people, but most noteworthy were Elizabeth Patterson's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Simeon B. Chapin, and John Bass, who had been introduced to Baba through Norina. Simeon Chapin was one day to donate several hundred acres of land in South Carolina to be used as a center for the Master's work; and John Bass was to become a lifelong disciple of the Master. In the evening, Baba went for a walk on Broadway in midtown Manhattan.

In the evening Baba went for a walk on Broadway in midtown Manhattan. The next day, Baba was driven by Elizabeth through Central Park. This was the first time she had driven Baba. Others had gone in another car, driven by Julian Lamar (the artist). Julian was upset, for someone had broken into his car and stolen his luggage the previous night. He mentioned this incident repeatedly to Baba, who asked, "It wasn't all you had in the world, was it?" Julian admitted it wasn't, and Baba remarked, "I am in you as well as in the thief!"
