    During her stay in Paris in the early 1900s, Laura Clifford Barney heard of the Bahá'í Faith and studied its tenets with May Maxwell, the renowned Bahá'í teacher. Laura embraced the nascent Faith and pursued a lifelong career of service to humanity. This paper is about one of her most remarkable achievements: Some Answered Questions is the descriptive title of the book she has compiled of answers to the questions she presented to 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
