F.                                      Attorneys’ Fees.  The provisions of the Lease respecting payment of attorneys’ fees shall also apply to this Amendment.




G.                                    Execution of Amendment.  Submission of this Amendment by Landlord is not an offer to enter into this Amendment but rather is a solicitation for such an offer by Tenant.  Landlord shall not be bound by this Amendment until Landlord has executed and delivered the same to Tenant.


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Landlord and Tenant have duly executed this First Amendment as of the day and year first above written.
