I have found a general synopses of a certain portion of 'Abdu'l-Baha's writings that seem relevant to my studies.

This is referenced as Makatib 1:85-99, which I think means what I am looking for is the book Makatib Hadrat `Abdu'l-Baha, volume 1, pages 85-99. The biggest problem for me being that this book is not in English. As it is relevant to my other studies, I want to start figuring out how to get a translation of these pages.

So my first question in this is: Does anyone know how I could go about obtaining a copy the text of these pages?? Or the entire book itself?? Additionally it would be helpful to know what language these pages are written in. I realize it is probably a long shot but I'm casting a wide net through the Baha'i circles I'm in to see if anyone knows how I could get my hands on this book.

After that comes the complicated task of finding someone willing and able to translate it, :p but one step at a time.

As I starting point, I would suggest you go the thread on this Forum titled, "‘Abdu’l-Bahá Speaks" initiated by Sen McGlinn on September 24, 2018 and private message him to see what counsel he might provide.

Is that the book I am looking for?? Sen names the book there "Khetabaat", and I had thought Makatib Hadrat `Abdu'l-Baha was supposed to be a collection of his letters, not his speaking engagements??

No it is not the book you are looking for. Though Sen may be able to help you locate what you are looking for was what I intended to communicate. He also translates from the Arabic and Persian, not that I am suggesting that he will do that for you. The Baha'i World Center Research Department would be another source, but their responses usually take months.
