One problem – Carolyn [Layton] told the USSR consul that we would be taking 1 million dollars from the External account in Guyana and transferring it to the State Bank of the USSR in England or wherever they say. However, the money in the account is $1,950,000 (rounded off) Guyanese. Richard [Janaro] is taking $60,000 to Trinidad which leaves 1,890,000 and Mary needs $25,000 left in the account which leaves 1,875,000 that ends up when transferring to American dollars under 1 million dollars. This is upsetting for them to have changes so is there a way to add to that to make up a million US or should I tell them what the real sum is?
