File No. SR-Amex-2005-072

I would like express my total support for the Barclays iShares Silver Trust ETF.

Having a mechanism in place to easily and safely invest in the silver bullion market, through a silver ETF, is a fundamental right and freedom that investors should have in the United States.

Intimately, other countries will also be developing and implementing silver ETF's as well, hence, the leadership by the SEC and AMEX warrants approval of the silver ETF as soon as reasonably possible.

Thank you for my right to express my approval of the silver ETF.

Sincerely,

R. Muffler
