Dear Sir or Madam:

Earlier today you received an email communication from Mr. Gerard J. Quinn, on behalf of the Securities Industry Association, requesting a two-week extension of the comment period to respond to SR-NYSE-2006-13 and SR-CBOE-2006-14. NYSE favors the granting of this extension. Should you require a more formal representation in this regard, kindly advise.
