HOPE, ARKANSAS. Researchers for the future William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library yesterday visited Clinton’s boyhood home in Hope, Arkansas where they claimed to have found a “shred of decency” in the President’s boyhood bedroom.

The “shred,” a fragment from an apparently sincere apology note written by Clinton in 1956 to a fellow 5th grader named Jeanette, expressed the boy’s “deepest apology” for spilling ink on her new dress.

The unsent “shred” will occupy a central position in a future exhibit on “Clinton’s Moral Leadership” at the Presidential Library.
