W-MCP7-1.134 Poem entitled Churchill for Bell's inscription.
Jun 6 1947


Ev'n as a bird
Out of the fowlers' snare
Escapes away
So is our soul set free:

Brake are their nets,
And thus escaped we
Therefore our help,
Is in the Lord's Great Name
Who heaven and earth
By His great pow'er did frame.

To God's Glory and in grateful memory of
Our Nations' Leaders
Winston Spencer Churchill
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
