hereof may designate in writing to Borrower in accordance with the provisions of
Section 17. The failure of Lender to provide such written notice to Borrower
will not relieve Borrower of its obligations under this Note. Borrower shall
make all payments in lawful money of the United States of America by wire

5. Prepayment. Borrower
shall not have the privilege of prepaying this Note in whole or in part at any
time without the prior written consent of Lender in Lender’s sole
acknowledges that any default in any payment due under this Note will result in
loss and additional expense to Lender in handling such delinquent payments and
meeting Lender’s other financial obligations. Because such loss and additional
expense is extremely difficult and impractical to ascertain, Borrower agrees
that if any payment hereunder (other than the final payment on maturity) is not
paid within 10 days after the due date, Borrower shall pay, as a reasonable
estimate of such loss and expense, a late charge equal to the lesser of [i] 5%

Lender elects otherwise, in its sole discretion, all payments and other amounts
received by Lender shall be credited as follows: [i] first to any charges,
costs, expenses and fees payable by Borrower under this Note, the Loan
Agreement, the Mortgage, or incurred by Lender for the protection of any
collateral securing the payment of this Note, if not paid by Borrower by the due
date after the expiration of any applicable grace period; [ii] second to
interest on the foregoing amounts at the Default Rate from the due date or date
of payment by Lender, as the case may be; [iii] third to accrued but unpaid
interest on this Note; [iv] fourth, to the principal amount outstanding; and [v]
the balance, if any, to Borrower.
8. Default. The
occurrence of an Event of Default under the Loan Agreement or Mortgage shall be
an Event of Default hereunder.
9. Acceleration. Upon the
occurrence of any Event of Default, in addition to all other remedies under the
Loan Agreement, Mortgage, any other security for or guarantee of this Note, and
at law or in equity, at the option of Lender [i] the outstanding principal
balance of this Note and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and all other
amounts payable by Borrower to Lender shall be immediately due and payable, and
[ii] all such amounts shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of
the Event of Default until paid. Lender may exercise either or both options
without notice or demand of any kind.

the State, without giving effect to the conflict of laws rules
is of the Essence. Time is
of the essence in the payment of this Note. All grace periods in the Loan

Borrower may pay the installment on the next succeeding day on which banking
institutions are open.

the following shall be a course of dealing, estoppel, waiver or the like on
which Borrower, Lender or any party to any Collateral Document may rely: [i]

forbearance from exercising any right or remedy under this Note or any
Collateral Document; or [iii] Lender’s forbearance from exercising any right or
remedy under this Note or any Collateral Document on any one or more occasions.
Lender’s exercise of any rights or remedies or a part of a right or remedy on
one or more occasions shall not preclude Lender from exercising the right or
remedy at any other time. Lender’s rights and remedies under this Note, the
Collateral Documents, and the law and equity are cumulative to, but independent
of, each other.
Borrower, Lender and each party to this Note and each Collateral Document: [i]
acknowledges that Lender would not have extended the credit evidenced by this
Note and will not continue to extend the credit but for the obligations of each;
[ii] warrants that each has executed this Note or Collateral Documents to induce
Lender to extend and to continue to extend the credit; [iii] warrants that each
has received good and valuable consideration for executing this Note or any
Collateral Document; and [iv] warrants that none have executed this Note or any
Collateral Document in reliance upon the existence of the security for or
guaranty or promise of the payment of this Note.
15. Indulgences. Without
notice, Lender may do or refrain from doing anything affecting this Note or any
Collateral Document, as many times as Lender desires, including the following:
[i] granting or not granting any indulgences to anyone liable for payment of
this Note or to anyone liable under any Collateral Document; [ii] releasing any
security or anyone or any property from liability on this Note or any Collateral
Document; [iii] amending this Note or any Collateral Document, including
extending the time for payment of this Note, in accordance with the terms of
Section 25 of this Note and as provided in the Collateral
Release of Liability. No
obligations of Borrower or Lender or any party to this Note shall be affected by
[i] any default in this Note or any Collateral Document when accepted by Lender
or arising any time thereafter; [ii] the unenforceability of or defect in this
Note or in any Collateral Document or any interest conveyed by any Collateral
Document; [iii] any decline in the value of any interest in any property
conveyed by any Collateral Document; or, [iv] the death, incompetence,
insolvency, dissolution, liquidation or winding up of affairs of Borrower,
Lender or any party to this Note or any Collateral Document or the start of
insolvency proceedings by or against any such party. BORROWER

subrogation or contribution unless and until this Note is paid in full and
waives all rights of subrogation against any party that is subject to insolvency

this Note is not that of the State, it is the intention of the parties to comply
with the law of the state whose law is, in fact, applicable concerning the
maximum lawful rate of interest on this Note. To the extent the amount of
interest provided in this Note ever exceeds the maximum lawful rate (the “Excess
Interest”), [i] the provisions of this paragraph shall govern and control; [ii]
Borrower shall not be obligated to pay any Excess Interest; [iii] any Excess
Interest that Lender may have received shall be credited against the then
outstanding balance due under this Note and, if the Excess Interest exceeds the
outstanding balance, the excess amount shall be refunded to Borrower; [iv] the
rate of interest under this Note or the Default Rate, as applicable, shall be
automatically reduced to the maximum lawful rate and this Note and any other
documents given in connection therewith shall be deemed reformed and modified to
reflect such reduction; and [v] subject to the foregoing provisions of this
paragraph, Borrower shall have no action or remedy against Lender for any
damages whatsoever or any defense to enforcement of the note or any other
documents given in connection therewith arising out of the payment or collection
of any Excess Interest. In determining whether interest paid or payable on this
Note exceeds the maximum lawful rate, Borrower agrees to exclude voluntary
prepayment fees from the calculation of interest and to spread the total amount
of interest throughout the entire contemplated term of this Note.
Fees and Expenses. Borrower
shall pay to Lender all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Lender in
administering the Loan and the security for the Loan, enforcing or preserving
Lender’s rights under this Note, the Loan Agreement, the Mortgage, or any other
Collateral Document, and in all matters of collection, whether or not an Event
of Default has actually occurred or has been declared and thereafter cured,

disbursements; [ii] the fees and expenses of any litigation, administrative,
bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership and any other similar proceeding; [iii]

witnesses in preparing for litigation, administrative, bankruptcy, insolvency
and other proceedings and for lodging, travel, and attendance at meetings,
hearings, depositions, and trials; and [v] consulting and witness fees incurred
by Lender in connection with any litigation or other proceeding.
23. Severability. If any
clause, provision, section or article of this Note is ruled invalid by any court
of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause, provision, section, or
article shall not affect any of the remaining provisions hereof.

shall not assign its rights nor delegate its obligations under this
25. Amendment. This
Note may not be amended except in writing signed by Borrower and Lender. All
references to this Note, whether in this Note or in any other document or
