The International Committee is aware of the value of this high distinction of which it is the recipient. It fully appreciates the honour it has been given, especially in view of the large number of serious contestants. To this it pays tribute to its predecessors and those who showed it the way to be followed, to Gustave Moynier, its President for forty years and to its actual President, Mr. G. Ador, whom it is entitled to name, since he is at present performing other duties and that it is due to his largeness of heart, his exceptional qualities and his personal and devoted labours that the International Prisoners of War Agency in Geneva was created, organized and developed.
