To whom it may concern,

I am an independent Registered Rep with Mutual Service Corp. We try very hard to offer qualified advice and services to our clients. In todays business climate, that is becoming increasingly difficult.

Your Point of Sale proposal concerns me greatly, and I have just been made aware that you have given us this day as a deadline to offer any comments.

The only comment I could make on such a short notice of time, is that I have not had the time necessary to understand the full nature of the proposal and what it would mean for my business.

I must ask for an extension of time for me to be able to fully comprehend and respond with any additonal comments.

Thanks for your help in this matter.
