I am submitting my opinion for the trading of the proposed Barclays ETF Silver fund. I would hope the SEC will allow this fund to go public as I want to invest in the fund as an alternative to holding silver bullion. Please take my brief comments as a YES vote for allowing the fund to trade. Thank you, Eric Brandt
