Dear David:

                  As we discussed by phone, this confirms our understanding that
(i) you have elected to terminate our services pursuant to the third-to-the-last
paragraph of our letter dated October 21, 1992 and the related indemnification
agreement (collectively, the "Letter Agreement"), effective November 30, 1997
(the "Termination Date"); and (ii) you have agreed to pay us, and we have agreed
to accept from you, the sum of $500,000 in cash, in full accord and satisfaction
of any fees payable to us under the Letter Agreement in respect of services
rendered and transactions occurring prior to the Termination Date for which we
have previously not received compensation under the Letter Agreement, including
without limitation your recent offer to exchange shares of 10 1/2% Series C
Convertible Preferred Stock for all outstanding shares of 5% Delayed Convertible
Preferred Stock.

         Other than as set forth above, this agreement shall not affect any
obligations or rights under the Letter Agreement which survive the termination
thereof including the indemnification agreement and the third-to-the-last
paragraph of the Letter Agreement relating to additional compensation during the
24 month period after termination of the Letter Agreement.

         David, this has been a very positive and mutually beneficial
relationship over the course of the past five years. I have received a
tremendous amount of personal satisfaction working with you. As we discussed, we
will continue to provide advice




and assistance to you as you work to bring your vision for the company to
fruition, and you should feel free to call on us at any time.

         Please indicate that this is in accordance with our understanding by
signing and returning to us the duplicate copy of this letter attached hereto,
which thereupon shall constitute a binding agreement.

                                         Very truly yours,

                                         BATCHELDER & PARTNERS, INC.
