Section 2.09. Treasury Notes.

      In determining whether the Holders of the required principal amount of
Notes have concurred in any direction, waiver or consent, Notes owned by an
Issuer, or by any Person directly or indirectly controlling or controlled by or
under direct or indirect common control with an Issuer, shall be considered as
though not outstanding, except that for the purposes of determining whether the
Trustee shall be protected in relying on any such direction, waiver or consent,
only Notes that a Responsible Officer of the Trustee knows are so owned shall be
so disregarded.

Section 2.10. Temporary Notes.

      Until certificates representing Notes are ready for delivery, the Issuers
may prepare (and, in the case of the Guarantee, the Guarantor may prepare) and
the Trustee, upon receipt of an Authentication Order, shall authenticate
temporary Notes (with corresponding Guarantees). Temporary Notes shall be
substantially in the form of certificated Notes but may have variations that the
Issuers considers appropriate for temporary Notes and as shall be reasonably
acceptable to the Trustee. Without unreasonable delay, the Issuers shall prepare
(and, in the case of the Guarantee, the Guarantor shall prepare) and the Trustee
shall authenticate definitive Notes (with corresponding Guarantees) in exchange
for temporary Notes.

      Holders of temporary Notes shall be entitled to all of the benefits of
this Indenture.

Section 2.11. Cancellation.

      The Issuers at any time may deliver Notes to the Trustee for cancellation.
The Registrar and Paying Agent shall forward to the Trustee any Notes
surrendered to them for registration of transfer, exchange or payment. The
Trustee and no one else shall cancel all Notes surrendered for registration of
transfer, exchange, payment, replacement or cancellation and shall destroy
canceled Notes. Certification of the destruction of all canceled Notes shall be
delivered to the Issuers. The Issuers may not issue new Notes to replace Notes
that they have paid or that have been delivered to the Trustee for cancellation.

Section 2.12. Defaulted Interest.

      If the Issuers default in a payment of interest on the Notes, they shall
pay the defaulted interest in any lawful manner plus, to the extent lawful,
interest payable on the defaulted interest, to the Persons who are Holders on a
subsequent special record date, in each case at the rate provided in the Notes
and in Section 4.01. The Issuers shall notify the Trustee in writing of the
amount of defaulted interest proposed to be paid on each Note and the date of
the proposed payment. The Issuers shall fix or cause to be fixed each such
special record date and payment date; provided that no such special record date
shall be less than 10 days prior to the related payment date for such defaulted
interest. At least 15 days before the special record date, the Issuers (or, upon
the written request of the Issuers, the Trustee in the name and at the expense
of the Issuers) shall mail or cause to be mailed to Holders a notice that states
the special record date, the related payment date and the amount of such
interest to be paid.
