Dear Mrs. Sear

We have recieved your letter and e-mail. Please excuse "disallowed", I
had in mind a much softer meaning than it has now after looking at the

Nevertheless I can not agree with your request. We have checked all
our cost statements as well as the cost statement from Bruxelles with
the payment breakdown details. We found out that there is a
disagreement concerning the second cost statement (period 07/95-
07/96). The exchange rate of ECU/DM at the time of the transfer of the
money (04/96) had been 1.88. That means that we have spent in this
period not 68.160 ECU but 70.719,10 ECU. In agreement with that your
second transfer of 32.316,88 ECU had been exchanged to 60.711,83 DM.
In the payment breakdown an exchange rate of about 1.95 as at the end
of the project is taken into account. We have spent the whole money
for the project except 732,72 ECU. This "overpayment" is mainly due to
the high exchange rate for the final 10% rate. I therefore only agree
to reimburse this calculated difference of 732,62 ECU.

Yours sincerely

Hanns Hubert Leuschner
