It's not online, but the <i>Journal of Baha'i Studies</i> did an article on Mishqin Qalam in a 1990 issue -- see citation at http://bahai-library.com/books/rg/rg.biblio03.html#5

For Abdu'l-Baha's bio of him, see http://bahai-library.com/writings/abdul ... ec-39.html

P.S. Dear Jonah: Is it a joke the Down syndrome of the persons who do weight-lifting? No joke!
