If this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, and the holder does not elect (in whole or in part) to receive payment in U.S. dollars pursuant to the next succeeding paragraph, payments of principal, premium, if any, and interest with regard to this Note will be made by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account maintained by the holder hereof with a bank located outside the United States if appropriate wire transfer instructions have been received by the Paying Agent in writing [not less than 15 calendar days prior to the applicable payment date]9 [, with respect to payments of interest, on or prior to the fifth Business Day prior to the applicable Record Date and, with respect to payments of principal or any premium, at least ten Business Days prior to the Maturity Date or any redemption or repayment date, as the case may be];10 provided that, if payment of principal, premium, if any, or interest with regard to this Note is payable in euro, the account must be a euro account in a country for which the euro is the lawful currency, provided, further, that if such wire transfer instructions are not received, such payments will be made by check payable in such Specified Currency mailed to the address of the person entitled thereto as such address shall appear in the Note register; and provided, further, that payment of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on this Note due at maturity (or on any redemption or repayment date) will be made upon surrender of this Note at the office or agency referred to in the preceding paragraph.

The Notes are issuable under a Subordinated Indenture, dated as of October 1, 2004, between the Issuer and The Bank of New York Mellon, a New York banking corporation (as successor to J.P.

The Issuer has appointed The Bank of New York Mellon (as successor to J.P. Morgan Trust Company, National Association) at its corporate trust office in The City of New York as the paying agent (the “Paying Agent,” which term includes any additional or successor Paying Agent appointed by the Issuer) with respect to the Notes. The terms of individual Notes may vary with respect to interest rates, interest rate formulas, issue dates, maturity dates, or otherwise, all as provided in the Subordinated Indenture. To the extent not inconsistent herewith, the terms of the Subordinated Indenture are hereby incorporated by reference herein.
 
Unless otherwise indicated on the face hereof, this Note will not be subject to any sinking fund and, unless otherwise provided on the face hereof in accordance with the provisions of the following two paragraphs, will not be redeemable or subject to repayment at the option of the holder prior to maturity.
 
If so indicated on the face hereof, this Note may be redeemed in whole or in part at the option of the Issuer on or after the Initial Redemption Date specified on the face hereof on the terms set forth on the face hereof, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of redemption. If this Note is subject to “Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction,” the Initial Redemption Percentage indicated on the face hereof will be reduced on each anniversary of the Initial Redemption Date by the Annual Redemption Percentage Reduction specified on the face hereof until the redemption price of this Note is 100% of the principal amount hereof, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of redemption.

In the event of redemption of this Note in part only, a new Note or Notes for the amount of the unredeemed portion hereof shall be issued in the name of the holder hereof upon the cancellation hereof.
 
If so indicated on the face of this Note, this Note will be subject to repayment at the option of the holder on the Optional Repayment Date or Dates specified on the face hereof on the terms set forth herein. On any Optional Repayment Date, this Note will be repayable in whole or in part in increments of $1,000 or, if this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, in increments of 1,000 units of such Specified Currency (provided that any remaining principal amount hereof shall not be less than the minimum authorized denomination hereof) at the option of the holder hereof at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount to be repaid, together with interest accrued and unpaid hereon to the date of repayment.

Notice of redemption will be given not less than 30 nor more than 60 calendar days prior to the date fixed for redemption or within the Redemption Notice Period specified on the face hereof, which date and the applicable redemption price will be specified in the notice.
 
If the face hereof indicates that this Note is subject to “Tax Redemption and Payment of Additional Amounts,” the Issuer will, subject to certain exceptions and limitations set forth below, pay such additional amounts (the “Additional Amounts”) to the holder of this Note with respect to any interest in this Note held by a beneficial owner who is a U.S. Alien as may be necessary in order that every net payment of the principal of and interest on this Note and any other amounts payable on this Note, after withholding or deduction for or on account of any present or future tax, assessment or governmental charge imposed upon or as a result of such payment by the United States, or any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States, will not be less than the amount provided for in this Note to be then due and payable. The Issuer will not, however, make any payment of Additional Amounts to the holder of this Note with respect to any interest in this Note held by any beneficial owner who is a U.S. Alien for or on account of:

any present or future tax, assessment or other governmental charge that would not have been so imposed but for
 
 
o
the existence of any present or former connection between the beneficial owner of an interest in this Note, or between a fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder of the beneficial owner, if the beneficial owner is an estate, a trust, a partnership or a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, and the United States, including, without limitation, the beneficial owner, or the fiduciary, settlor, beneficiary, member or shareholder, being or having been a citizen or resident of the United States or being or having been engaged in the conduct of a trade or business or present in the United States or having, or having had, a permanent establishment in the United States; or
 
 
o

·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge that is payable otherwise than by withholding or deduction from payments on or in respect of this Note;

 
8

 
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge required to be withheld by any Paying Agent from any payment of principal of, or interest on, this Note, if payment can be made without withholding by at least one other Paying Agent;
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed solely because the beneficial owner of an interest in this Note (1) is a bank purchasing this Note in the ordinary course of its lending business or (2) is a bank that is neither (A) buying this Note for investment purposes nor (B) buying this Note for resale to a third party that either is not a bank or holding this Note for investment purposes only;
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge that would not have been imposed but for the failure to comply with certification, information or other reporting requirements concerning the nationality, residence, identity or connection with the United States of the beneficial owner of an interest in this Note, if compliance is required by statute or by regulation of the United States or of any political subdivision or taxing authority of or in the United States as a precondition to relief or exemption from the tax, assessment or other governmental charge;
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed or collected pursuant to Sections 1471 through 1474 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), any intergovernmental agreements entered into in connection with the implementation of such sections of the Code, or any fiscal or regulatory legislation, rules or practices adopted pursuant to any intergovernmental agreement entered into in connection with the implementation of such sections of the Code;
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed pursuant to Section 871(m) of the Code and any applicable Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder or published administrative guidance implementing such section;
 
 
·
any tax, assessment or other governmental charge imposed by reason of the beneficial owner’s past or present status as the actual or constructive owner of 10% or more of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote of the Issuer or as a direct or indirect subsidiary of the Issuer; or
 
 
·
any combination of the items listed above.
 
In addition, the Issuer will not be required to make any payment of Additional Amounts with respect to any interest in this Note presented for payment:
 
 
·
where such withholding or deduction is imposed on a payment to an individual and is required to be made pursuant to any law implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, any European Union Directive on the taxation of savings; or
 
 
·
by or on behalf of a beneficial owner who would have been able to avoid such withholding or deduction by presenting this Note to another Paying Agent in a member state of the European Union.
 
Nor will the Issuer pay Additional Amounts with respect to any payment with respect to any interest in this Note to a U.S. Alien who is a fiduciary or partnership or other than the sole beneficial owner of the payment to the extent the payment would be required by the laws of the United States (or any political subdivision of the United States) to be included in the income, for tax purposes, of a beneficiary or settlor with respect to the fiduciary or a member of the partnership or a beneficial owner who would not have been entitled to the Additional Amounts had the beneficiary, settlor, member or beneficial owner held its interest in this Note directly.

Commencing with the Initial Interest Reset Date specified on the face hereof, the rate at which interest on this Note is payable shall be reset as of each Interest Reset Date specified on the face hereof (as used herein, the term “Interest Reset Date” shall include the Initial Interest Reset Date). For the purpose of determining the Initial Interest Rate, references in this paragraph, the next succeeding paragraph and, if applicable, clauses (i) and (ii) under “Determination of EURIBOR” below to Interest Reset Date shall be deemed to mean the Original Issue Date. The

determination of the rate of interest at which this Note will be reset on any Interest Reset Date shall be made on the Interest Determination Date (as defined below) pertaining to such Interest Reset Dates. The Interest Reset Dates will be the Interest Reset Dates specified on the face hereof; provided, however, that (a) the interest rate in effect for the period from the Interest Accrual Date to the Initial Interest Reset Date will be the Initial Interest Rate and (b) unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the interest rate in effect for the ten calendar days immediately prior to maturity, redemption or repayment will be that in effect on the tenth calendar day preceding such maturity, redemption or repayment date. If any Interest Reset Date would otherwise be a day that is not a Business Day, such Interest Reset Date shall be postponed to the next succeeding day that is a Business Day, except that if the Base Rate specified on the face hereof is LIBOR or EURIBOR and such Business Day is in the next succeeding calendar month, such Interest Reset Date shall be the immediately preceding Business Day. As used herein, “Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday or Sunday, (a) that is neither a legal holiday nor a day on which banking institutions are authorized or required by law or regulation to close (x) in The City of New York or (y) if this Note is denominated in a Specified Currency other than U.S. dollars, euro or Australian dollars, in the principal financial center of the country of the Specified Currency, or (z) if this Note is denominated in Australian dollars, in Sydney and (b) if this Note is denominated in euro, that is also a day on which the Trans-European Automated Real-time Gross Settlement Express Transfer payment system (“TARGET”) , which utilizes a single shared platform and was launched on November 19, 2007, is open for the settlement of payment in euro (a “TARGET Settlement Day”).
 
The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to the Federal Funds Rate, Federal Funds (Open) Rate and Prime Rate shall be on the Business Day prior to the Interest Reset Date. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to the Commercial Paper Rate and CMT Rate will be the second Business Day prior to such Interest Reset Date. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to EURIBOR (or to LIBOR when the Index Currency is euros) shall be the second TARGET Settlement Day prior to such Interest Reset Date. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to LIBOR (other than for LIBOR Notes for which the Index Currency is euros) shall be the second London Banking Day prior to such Interest Reset Date, except that the Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for a LIBOR Note for which the Index Currency is pounds sterling will be such Interest Reset Date. As used herein, “London Banking Day” means any day on which dealings in deposits in the Index Currency (as defined herein) are transacted in the London interbank market. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to the Treasury Rate shall be the day of the week in which such Interest Reset Date falls on which Treasury bills normally would be auctioned. Treasury Bills are normally sold at auction on Monday of each week, unless that day is a legal holiday, in which case the auction is normally held on the following Tuesday, except that the auction may be held on the preceding Friday; provided, however, that if an auction is held on the Friday of the week preceding such Interest Reset Date, the Interest Determination Date shall be such preceding Friday; and provided, further, that if an auction shall fall on any Interest Reset Date, then the Interest Reset Date shall instead be the first Business Day following the date of such auction. The Interest Determination Date pertaining to an Interest Reset Date for Notes bearing interest calculated by reference to two or more base rates will be the latest Business Day that is at least two Business Days before the Interest Reset Date for the applicable Note on which each base rate is determinable.
 
Unless otherwise specified on the face hereof, the “Calculation Date” pertaining to an Interest Determination Date, including the Interest Determination Date as of which the Initial Interest Rate is determined, will be the earlier of (i) the tenth calendar day after such Interest Determination Date or, if such day is not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day, or (ii) the Business Day immediately preceding the applicable Interest Payment Date or Maturity Date (or, with respect to any principal amount to be redeemed or repaid, any redemption or repayment date), as the case may be.
 
Determination of Commercial Paper Rate. If the Base Rate specified on the face hereof is the “Commercial Paper Rate,” for any Interest Determination Date, the Commercial Paper Rate with respect to this Note shall be the Money Market Yield (as defined herein), calculated as described below, of the rate on that date for U.S. dollar commercial paper having the Index Maturity specified on the face hereof, as that rate is published in H.15(519), under the heading “Commercial Paper -- Nonfinancial.”
 
The following procedures shall be followed if the Commercial Paper Rate cannot be determined as described above:
 
 
10

 

(i) If the above rate is not published by 3:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Calculation Date, then the Commercial Paper Rate shall be the Money Market Yield of the rate on that Interest Determination Date for commercial paper of the Index Maturity specified on the face hereof as published in the H.15 Daily Update, or other recognized electronic source used for the purpose of displaying the applicable rate, under the heading “Commercial Paper -- Nonfinancial.”
 
(ii) If by 3:00 p.m., New York City time, on that Calculation Date the rate is not yet published in either H.15(519) or the H.15 Daily Update, or other recognized electronic source used for the purpose of displaying the applicable rate, then the Calculation Agent shall determine the Commercial Paper Rate to be the Money Market Yield of the arithmetic mean of the offered rates as of 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on that Interest Determination Date of three leading dealers of U.S. dollar commercial paper in The City of New York, which may include the initial dealer and its affiliates, selected by the Calculation Agent (after consultation with the Issuer), for commercial paper of the Index Maturity specified on the face hereof, placed for an industrial issuer whose bond rating is “Aa,” or the equivalent, from a nationally recognized statistical rating agency.
 
(iii) If the dealers selected by the Calculation Agent are not quoting as set forth in (ii) above, the Commercial Paper Rate for that Interest Determination Date shall remain the Commercial Paper Rate for the immediately preceding Interest Reset Period, or, if there was no Interest Reset Period, the rate of interest payable shall be the Initial Interest Rate.
 
The “Money Market Yield” shall be a yield calculated in accordance with the following formula:
 
 
where “D” refers to the applicable per year rate for commercial paper quoted on a bank discount basis and expressed as a decimal and “M” refers to the actual number of days in the interest period for which interest is being calculated.
 
Determination of EURIBOR.

(vi) f fewer than three Reference Dealers selected by the Calculation Agent are quoting as described in (iv) above, the CMT Rate for that Interest Determination Date shall remain the CMT Rate for the immediately preceding Interest Reset Period, or, if there was no Interest Reset Period, the rate of interest payable shall be the Initial Interest Rate.
 
 
15

 

“Designated CMT Reuters Page” means the display on Reuters, or any successor service, on the page designated on the face hereof or any other page as may replace that page on that service for the purpose of displaying Treasury Constant Maturities as reported in H.15(519). If no Reuters page is specified on the face hereof, the Designated CMT Reuters Page shall be FEDCMT, for the most recent week.
 
“Designated CMT Maturity Index” means the original period to maturity of the U.S. Treasury securities, which is either 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10, 20 or 30 years, as specified on the face hereof, for which the CMT Rate shall be calculated.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the interest rate hereon shall not be greater than the Maximum Interest Rate, if any, or less than the Minimum Interest Rate, if any, specified on the face hereof. The Calculation Agent shall calculate the interest rate hereon in accordance with the foregoing on or before each Calculation Date.

Accrued interest hereon shall be an amount calculated by multiplying the face amount hereof by an accrued interest factor. Such accrued interest factor shall be computed by adding the interest factor calculated for each day in the period for which interest is being paid. The interest factor for each such date shall be computed by dividing the interest rate applicable to such day (i) by 360 if the Base Rate is Commercial Paper Rate, EURIBOR, Federal Funds Rate, Federal Funds (Open) Rate, Prime Rate or LIBOR (except if the Index Currency is pounds sterling); (ii) by 365 if the Base Rate is LIBOR and the Index Currency is pounds sterling; or (iii) by the actual number of days in the year if the Base Rate is the Treasury Rate or the CMT Rate. All percentages resulting from any calculation of the rate of interest on this Note will be rounded, if necessary, to the nearest one hundred-thousandth of a percentage point (with .000005% being rounded up to .00001%) and all U.S. dollar amounts used in or resulting from such calculation on this Note will be rounded to the nearest cent, with one-half cent rounded upward. All Japanese Yen amounts used in or resulting from such calculations will be rounded downwards to the next lower whole Japanese Yen amount. All amounts denominated in any other currency used in or resulting from such calculations will be rounded to the nearest two decimal places in such currency, with .005 being rounded up to .01. The interest rate in effect on any Interest Reset Date will be the applicable rate as reset on such date. The interest rate applicable to any other day is the interest rate from the immediately preceding Interest Reset Date (or, if none, the Initial Interest Rate).
 
This Note and all other obligations of the Issuer hereunder will constitute part of the subordinated debt of the Issuer, will be issued under the Subordinated Indenture and will be subordinate and junior in right of payment, to the extent and in the manner set forth in the Subordinated Indenture, to all “Senior Indebtedness” of the Issuer.

All Notes surrendered for exchange shall be accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Issuer and the Registrar and executed by the registered holder in person or by the holder's attorney duly authorized in writing. The date of registration of any Note delivered upon any exchange or transfer of Notes shall be such that no gain or loss of interest results from such exchange or transfer.
 
In case this Note shall at any time become mutilated, defaced or be destroyed, lost or stolen and this Note or evidence of the loss, theft or destruction thereof (together with the indemnity hereinafter referred to and such other documents or proof as may be required in the premises) shall be delivered to the Trustee, the Issuer in its discretion may execute a new Note of like tenor in exchange for this Note, but, if this Note is destroyed, lost or stolen, only upon receipt of evidence satisfactory to the Trustee and the Issuer that this Note was destroyed or lost or stolen and, if required, upon receipt also of indemnity satisfactory to each of them. All expenses and reasonable charges associated with procuring such indemnity and with the preparation, authentication and delivery of a new Note shall be borne by the owner of the Note mutilated, defaced, destroyed, lost or stolen.

17

 

defaults may be waived (except a continuing default in payment of principal or premium, if any, or interest on such debt securities) by the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of all affected series then outstanding.
 
The Subordinated Indenture permits the Issuer and the Trustee, with the consent of the holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of all series issued under the Subordinated Indenture then outstanding and affected (voting as one class), to execute supplemental indentures adding any provisions to or changing in any manner the rights of the holders of each series so affected; provided that the Issuer and the Trustee may not, without the consent of the holder of each outstanding debt security affected thereby, (i) extend the final maturity of any such debt security, or reduce the principal amount thereof, or reduce the rate or extend the time of payment of interest thereon, or reduce any amount payable on redemption thereof, or change the currency of payment thereof, or reduce the amount of any original issue discount security payable upon acceleration or provable in bankruptcy, or modify or amend the provisions for conversion of any currency into any other currency, or modify or amend the provisions for conversion or exchange of the debt security for securities of the Issuer or other entities or for other property or the cash value of the property (other than as provided in the antidilution provisions or other similar adjustment provisions of the debt securities or otherwise in accordance with the terms thereof), or alter certain provisions of the Subordinated Indenture relating to debt securities not denominated in U.S. dollars or impair or affect the rights of any holder of any series to institute suit for the payment thereof or (ii) reduce the aforesaid percentage in principal amount of debt securities of any series the consent of the holders of which is required for any such supplemental indenture; provided, however, that neither this Note nor the Subordinated Indenture may be amended to alter the subordination provisions hereof or thereof without the written consent of each holder of Senior Indebtedness then outstanding that would potentially be adversely affected thereby.
 
Except as set forth below, if the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on this Note is payable in a Specified Currency other than  U.S. dollars and such Specified Currency is not available to the Issuer for making payments hereon due to the imposition of exchange controls or other circumstances beyond the control of the Issuer or is no longer used by the government of the country issuing such currency or for the settlement of transactions by public institutions within the international banking community, then the Issuer will be entitled to satisfy its obligations to the holder of this Note by making such payments in U.S. dollars on the basis of the Market Exchange Rate on the date of such payment or, if the Market Exchange Rate is not available on such date, as of the most recent practicable date; provided, however, that if the euro has been substituted for such Specified Currency, the Issuer may at its option (or shall, if so required by applicable law) without the consent of the holder of this Note effect the payment of principal of, premium, if any, or interest on any Note denominated in such Specified Currency in euro in lieu of such Specified Currency in conformity with legally applicable measures taken pursuant to, or by virtue of, the Treaty establishing the European Community, as amended. Any payment made under such circumstances in U.S. dollars or euro where the required payment is in an unavailable Specified Currency will not constitute an Event of Default. If such Market Exchange Rate is not then available to the Issuer or is not published for a particular Specified Currency, the Market Exchange Rate will be based on the highest bid quotation in The City of New York received by the Exchange Rate Agent at approximately 11:00 a.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day preceding the date of such payment from three recognized foreign exchange dealers (the “Exchange Dealers”) for the purchase by the quoting Exchange Dealer of the Specified Currency for U.S. dollars for settlement on the payment date, in the aggregate amount of the Specified Currency payable to those holders or beneficial owners of Notes and at which the applicable Exchange Dealer commits to execute a contract. One of the Exchange Dealers providing quotations may be the Exchange Rate Agent unless the Exchange Rate Agent is an affiliate of the Issuer. If those bid quotations are not available, the Exchange Rate Agent shall determine the market exchange rate at its sole discretion.
 
The “Exchange Rate Agent” shall be Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, unless otherwise indicated on the face hereof.
 
All determinations referred to above made by, or on behalf of, the Issuer or by, or on behalf of, the Exchange Rate Agent shall be at such entity’s sole discretion and shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive for all purposes and binding on holders of Notes.
 
So long as this Note shall be outstanding, the Issuer will cause to be maintained an office or agency for the payment of the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on this Note as herein provided in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York, and an office or agency in said Borough of Manhattan for the registration, transfer and exchange as aforesaid of the Notes. The Issuer may designate other agencies for the payment of said
 
 
18

 

principal, premium and interest at such place or places (subject to applicable laws and regulations) as the Issuer may decide. So long as there shall be such an agency, the Issuer shall keep the Trustee advised of the names and locations of such agencies, if any are so designated. If any European Union Directive on the taxation of savings comes into force, the Issuer will, to the extent possible as a matter of law, maintain a Paying Agent in a Member State of the European Union that will not be obligated to withhold or deduct tax pursuant to any such Directive or any law implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, such Directive.
 
With respect to moneys paid by the Issuer and held by the Trustee or any Paying Agent for payment of the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on any Notes that remain unclaimed at the end of two years after such principal, interest or premium shall have become due and payable (whether at maturity or upon call for redemption or otherwise), (i) the Trustee or such Paying Agent shall notify the holders of such Notes that such moneys shall be repaid to the Issuer and any person claiming such moneys shall thereafter look only to the Issuer for payment thereof and (ii) such moneys shall be so repaid to the Issuer. Upon such repayment all liability of the Trustee or such Paying Agent with respect to such moneys shall thereupon cease, without, however, limiting in any way any obligation that the Issuer may have to pay the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on this Note as the same shall become due.
 
No provision of this Note or of the Subordinated Indenture shall alter or impair the obligation of the Issuer, which is absolute and unconditional, to pay the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on this Note at the time, place, and rate, and in the coin or currency, herein prescribed unless otherwise agreed between the Issuer and the registered holder of this Note.
 
Prior to due presentment of this Note for registration of transfer, the Issuer, the Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Trustee may treat the holder in whose name this Note is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Note be overdue, and none of the Issuer, the Trustee or any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.
 
No recourse shall be had for the payment of the principal of, premium, if any, or interest on this Note, for any claim based hereon, or otherwise in respect hereof, or based on or in respect of the Subordinated Indenture or any indenture supplemental thereto, against any incorporator, shareholder, officer or director, as such, past, present or future, of the Issuer or of any successor corporation, either directly or through the Issuer or any successor corporation, whether by virtue of any constitution, statute or rule of law or by the enforcement of any assessment or penalty or otherwise, all such liability being, by the acceptance hereof and as part of the consideration for the issue hereof, expressly waived and released.
