Dear SEC:

I have just become aware that the NYSE has re-submitted the above-referenced matter, and has attempted to respond to my earlier comments. The re-submission is so substantively inadequate that it raises good faith issues in at least two contexts. This matter is not "properly designated" as a rule "interpretation per the requirements of SEC Rule 19b-4. I will be submitting a detailed, substantive response no later than Monday, December 12, 2005. I ask that the SEC not process this matter until the SEC staff have had an opportunity to review those comments.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,

George Rutherfurd
