bear AL.: 
       .ky belief in an unexpended balance has erisdn because I have 
not had the entire picture of Delta expenses before me. I was unaware 
that the $160.00 carry-over from last year was charged to this year's 
budget or I would have accounted for it at the beginning of the year. 
Perhaps the increase in salary was also taken from the existing budget; 
I assumed that it represented an addition to the budget. 
       I have knowingly overdrawn on the hatchery supplies and 
travel expenses but believed these would be fully covered by 
Peter Wardls unpaid salary for the last three months of the year. 
My monthly expenses at Delta as bpl1anced with the budget for the 
year would still show an unexpended balance,but not, of course 
with the additional e penses which did not sbow on my booke. 
       I feel very badly tbet this mistake has occurred 
                         Yours sincerely, 
Albert Hochbaum
