Unnecessary cynicism

Sir: I feel I must protest against Auberon Waugh's cynical piece about President Clinton and the little Belfast girl (Another voice, 9 December). I wonder how he would feel if he had a similar article about this country in an intelligent American journal. I cannot see the point of contribut- ing to the contempt and hostility in the world.
