Su Pueblo Es Digno, Su Pueblo Es Fiel A Su Recuerdo: Hay Cubanos Que Han Caido Defendiendo Sus Doctrinas, Hay Jovenes Que En Magnifico Desagravio Vinieron A Morir Junto A Su Tumba, A Darle Su Sangre Y Su Vida Para Que El Siga Viviendo En El Alma De La Patria..."

Translation: 1- Intellectual author - "It seemed that the Apostle was going to die on the year of his centennial, that his memory would be extinguished forever. What an outrage! But he lives, he has not died, his people are rebels, his people are worthy, his people are faithful to his memory: There are Cubans who have fallen defending his doctrines, there are young people who in a magnificent struggle came to die by his tomb, to give him their blood and their lives so that he can continue living in the soul of the nation.
Part of "La Historia Me Absolvera" series; English translation of text taped on verso as well as note reading: "From Fidel's 'History will absolve me' speech when he stood trial after the attack on the Moncada Barracks (1953)."
