beneficial owners of ten per cent (10%) or more of any class of their equity
securities (beneficial ownership meaning the power to vote or direct the vote

    2.   Indemnification

         2.01 The Operating General Partner (for purposes of this
Section 2.01, the  "Indemnifying Party") agrees to indemnify and hold harmless
the Limited Partners and the Investment General Partner (for purposes of this
Section 2.01, the "Indemnified Parties" or, individually, an "Indemnified
Party") and each officer, director, employee and person, if any, who controls
any party against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities (collectively,
"Liabilities"), joint or several, to which any Indemnified Party or such
officer, director, employee or controlling person may become subject, insofar
as such Liabilities or actions in respect thereof arise out of or are based
upon (i) a breach by such Indemnifying Party of any of his representations,
warranties or covenants to such Indemnified Party or any such of its officers,
directors, employees or controlling persons under this Certification and
Agreement or (ii) liability under any statute, regulation, ordinance, or other
provision of federal, state, or local law or any civil action pertaining to
the protection of the environment or otherwise pertaining to public health or
employee health and safety, including, without limitation, protection from
hazardous waste, lead-based paint, asbestos, methane gas, urea formaldehyde
insulation, oil, toxic substance, underground storage tanks, polychlorinated
biphenals (PCBs), and radon; and to reimburse each such Indemnified Party and
each such officer, director, employee or controlling person for any legal or
other expenses reasonably incurred by it or them in connection with
investigating or defending against any such Liability or action; provided,
however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not be required to indemnify any
Indemnified Party or any such officer, director, employee or controlling
person for any payment made to any claimant in settlement of any Liability or
action unless such payment is approved by the Indemnifying Party or by a court
having jurisdiction of the controversy.  This indemnity agreement shall remain
in full force and effect notwithstanding any investigation made by any party
hereto, shall survive the termination of any agreement which refers to this
indemnity and shall be in addition to any liability which the Indemnifying
Party may otherwise have.

         2.02 The Indemnifying Party shall be liable under the indemnity
agreements contained in Section 2.01 unless the Indemnified Party shall have
notified the Indemnifying Party in writing within forty-five (45) business
days after the summons or other first legal process giving information of the
nature of the claim shall have been served upon the Indemnified Party or any
such of its officers, directors, employees or controlling persons, but failure
to notify an Indemnifying Party of any such claim shall not relieve it from
any liability which it may have to the Indemnified Party or any such of its
officers, directors, employees or controlling persons against whom action is
brought otherwise than on account of its indemnity agreement contained in
Section 2.01.  In case any action is brought against any Indemnified Party or
any such of its officers, directors, employees or controlling persons upon any
such claim, and it notifies the Indemnifying Party of the commencement thereof
as aforesaid, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to participate at its
own expense in the defense, or, if it so elects, in accordance with arrange-
ments satisfactory to any other Indemnifying Party or parties similarly noti-
fied, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel who shall be satisfactory to
such Indemnified Party or any such of its officers, directors, employees or
controlling persons and any other Indemnified Parties who are defendants in
such action; and after notice from the Indemnifying Party to such Indemnified
Party or any such of its officers, directors, employees or controlling persons
of its election so to assume the defense thereof and the retaining of such
counsel by the Indemnifying Party, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable
to such Indemnified Party or any such of its officers, directors, employees or
controlling persons for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by
such Indemnified Party or any such of its officers, directors, employees or
controlling persons in connection with the defense thereof, other than the
reasonable costs of investigation.

therein), and their respective successors and assigns, and no other person

counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, all of which
together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
