Excerpt from The New Word: An Open Letter Addressed to the Swedish Academy in Stockholm on the Meaning of the Word Idealist And finally, one share to the person who shall have most or best promoted the Fraternity of Nations and the Abolition or Diminution of Standing Armies and the Formation and Increase of Peace Congresses.

The prizes for Physics and Chemistry shall be awarded by the Swedish Academy of Science in Stockholm; the one for Physiology or Medicine by the Caroline Medical Institute in Stockholm; the prize for Literature by the Academy in Stockholm, and that for Peace by a Committee of five persons to be elected by the Norwegian Storthing.

I declare it to be my express desire that in the awarding of prizes no consideration whatever he paid to the nationality of the candidates, that is to say, that the most deserving be awarded the prize, whether of Scandinavian origin or not.

The more attentively we study these provisions the more we shall be struck by their profound origin ality and insight.
