2.      No other Change.  Except as expressly modified herein,
the terms of the Note remain unchanged and are in full force
and effect.  In no event shall this Note Modification Agreement

indebtedness evidenced thereby.

3.      References.  All references to the "Note" in any
agreements, mortgages, or instruments securing or otherwise
pertaining to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note or
otherwise referring to the Note shall be deemed to refer to the
Note as hereby modified.
