2. Tenders should be forwarded in an envelope clearly addressed to this bank or appropriate branch as Fiscal Agent of the

bank or appropriate branch.
3. Any qualified or conditional tender will be rejected.
4. If a corporation makes the tender, the form should be signed by an officer of the corporation authorized to make the

incorporated bank or tru st company.
6. If the language of this form is changed in any respect, which, in the opinion of the Secretary of the Treasury is
material, the tender may be disregarded.
