Oregon governor forgives a boy for the sweeping hazelnut, pen

A fourth grade boy who nicked a hazelnut and pen during a tour of Oregon’s Capitol Building was pardoned by the governor after sending her a handwritten apology letter.

“Dear Governor Brown,” Samuel Revenko wrote in the letter to Gov. Kate Brown. “While we were there, I took a hazelnut and a pen from the Capitol. These things are not of me and it was wrong of me to take. I’m very sorry.”

Revenko took the items in a classroom tour to the Capitol on April 19.

“I hope that you and the people of Oregon can forgive me,” Revenko wrote.

Brown was so touched by the excuse that they posted the note on Facebook on Thursday. The governor wrote a return note, to accept Revenko the apology and forgiven him for the crime.

“Thank you for the note of apology. On behalf of the people of Oregon, I accept your apology and forgive you,” Brown said.

“Oregon is a special place. I hope that we can work together to keep it that way,” she added.

As a last gesture of appreciation for Revenko apologizing, Brown sent the boy his own pen to keep.

“I hope that the pen is coming your way, a fitting memento of your visit to the Capitol. Come back soon!” Brown wrote.
