Dear Mr. Rawls:

Please allow this letter to serve as an acknowledgement of your April 10,1998 letter. I must, however, state at the outset that I am a little surprised by your statement that there has been no communication between the parties for some time, when I review the correspondence sent to Corporate Counsel Polly Kim Close, a copy of which I have enclosed for your edification. And I quote from that letter, which states as follows;





Accordingly, once again with the foregoing in mind, this office respectfully requests that you respond substantively to the above noted comments. Thanking you in advance, I am


Very truly yours,


Steven S. Konowitz
