Love and Service; Dr Bob (30 July 1950)
Dr. Bob said in his farewell talk ‘my good friends in AA and of AA. I feel I would be very remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to welcome you not only to this meeting but those that have already transpired. I hope very much that the presence of so many people and the words that you hear will prove an inspiration to you. In other words, we hope that your visit here will be both enjoyable and profitable’ Read more
