A card enclosed with the brooch reads:
"When Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin were designing the Great Seal of the United States, they chose to include the olive branch, which since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans has symbolized victory and peace. The olive branch is a link between the hopes of our ancient forebears who first gave birth to democracy and the finest aspirations of mankind for present and future generations."
