The cachet's text reads as follows:

WINSTON
CHURCHILL
Born Nov. 30, 1874 Died Jan. 24, 1965
"When there was darkness in the world, and hope was low in the hearts of men, a generous providence gave us Winston Churchill. ° ° ° With our grief let there be gratitude for a life so fully lived, for services so splendid, and for the joys he gave us by the joy he took in all he did. ° ° ° He is history's child, and what he said and what he did will never die." --Lyndon B. Johnson
