MASTER AGREEMENT

dated as of July 25, 2001



WESTDEUTSCHE lANDESBANK GIROZENTRALE, NEW YORK BRANCH
("Party A")-
and-
MBNA CREDIT CARD MASTER NOTE TRUST
("Party B")

have entered and/or anticipate entering into one or more transactions
(each a "Transaction") that are or will be governed by this Master
Agreement, which includes the schedule (the "Schedule"), and the
documents and other confirming evidence (each a "Confirmation")
exchanged between the parties confirming those Transactions.

Accordingly, the parties agree as follows:?

1.	Interpretation

(a)	Definitions.  The terms defined in Section 14 and in the Schedule
will have the meanings therein specified for the purpose of this Master
Agreement.

(b)	Inconsistency.  In the event of any inconsistency between the
provisions of the Schedule and the other provisions of this Master
Agreement, the Schedule will prevail.  In the event of any
inconsistency between the provisions of any Confirmation and this
Master Agreement (including the Schedule), such Confirmation will
prevail for the purpose of the relevant Transaction.

(c)	Single Agreement.  All Transactions are entered into in reliance
on the fact that this Master Agreement and all Confirmations form a
single agreement between the parties (collectively referred to as this
"Agreement"), and the parties would not otherwise enter into any
Transactions.

2.	Obligations

(a)	General Conditions.

(i)	Each party will make each payment or delivery specified in
each Confirmation to be made by it, subject to the other
provisions of this Agreement.

(ii)	Payments under this Agreement will be made on the due date
for value on that date in the place of the account specified in
the relevant Confirmation or otherwise pursuant to this
Agreement, in freely transferable funds and in the manner
customary for payments in the required currency.  Where
settlement is by delivery (that is, other than by payment), such
delivery will be made for receipt on the due date in the manner
customary for the relevant obligation unless otherwise specified
in the relevant Confirmation or elsewhere in this Agreement.

(iii)	Each obligation of each party under Section 2(a)(i) is
subject to (1) the condition precedent that no Event of Default
or Potential Event of Default with respect to the other party has
occurred and is continuing, (2) the condition precedent that no
Early Termination Date in respect of the relevant Transaction has
occurred or been effectively designated and (3) each other
applicable condition precedent specified in this Agreement.

 (b)	Change of Account.  Either party may change its account for
receiving a payment or delivery by giving notice to the other party at
least five Local Business Days prior to the scheduled date for the
payment or delivery to which such change applies unless such other
party gives timely notice of a reasonable objection to such change.

(c)	Netting.  If on any date amounts would otherwise be payable:?

(i)	in the same currency; and

(ii)	in respect of the same Transaction,

by each party to the other, then, on such date, each party's obligation
to make payment of any such amount will be automatically satisfied and
discharged and, if the aggregate amount that would otherwise have been
payable by one party exceeds the aggregate amount that would otherwise
have been payable by the other party, replaced by an obligation upon
the party by whom the larger aggregate amount would have been payable
to pay to the other party the excess of the larger aggregate amount
over the smaller aggregate amount.

The parties may elect in respect of two or more Transactions that a net
amount will be determined in respect of all amounts payable on the same
date in the same currency in respect of such Transactions, regardless
of whether such amounts are payable in respect of the same Transaction.
The election may be made in the Schedule or a Confirmation by
specifying that subparagraph (ii) above will not apply to the
Transactions identified as being subject to the election, together with
the starting date (in which case subparagraph (ii) above will not, or
will cease to, apply to such Transactions from such date).  This
election may be made separately for different groups of Transactions
and will apply separately to each pairing of Offices through which the
parties make and receive
payments or deliveries.

(d)	Deduction or Withholding for Tax.

(i)	Gross-Up.  All payments under this Agreement will be made
without any deduction or withholding for or on account of any Tax
unless such deduction or withholding is required by any applicable
law, as modified by the practice of any relevant governmental
revenue authority, then in effect.  If a party is so required to
deduct or withhold, then that party ("X") will:?

		(1) 	promptly notify the other party ("Y") of such
requirement;

	(2)	pay to the relevant authorities the full amount required
to be deducted or withheld (including the full amount required
to be deducted or withheld from any additional amount paid by
X to Y under this Section 2(d)) promptly upon the earlier of
determining that such deduction or withholding is required or
receiving notice that such amount has been assessed against Y;

	(3)	promptly forward to Y an official receipt (or a certified
copy), or other documentation reasonably acceptable to Y,
evidencing such payment to such authorities; and

	(4)	if such Tax is an Indemnifiable Tax, pay to Y, in addition
to the payment to which Y is otherwise entitled under this
Agreement, such additional amount as is necessary to ensure
that the net amount actually received by Y (free and clear of
Indemnifiable Taxes, whether assessed against X or Y) will
equal the full amount Y would have received had no such
deduction or withholding been required.  However, X will not
be required to pay any additional amount to Y to the extent
that it would not be required to be paid but for:?

	(A)	the failure by Y to comply with or perform any agreement
contained in Section 4(a)(i), 4(a)(iii) or 4(d); or

	(B)	the failure of a representation made by Y pursuant to
Section 3(f) to be accurate and true unless such failure
would not have occurred but for (I) any action taken by a
taxing authority, or brought in a court of competent
jurisdiction, on or after the date on which a Transaction
is entered into (regardless of whether such action is taken
or brought with respect to a party to this Agreement) or
(II) a Change in Tax Law.

	(ii)	Liability.  If:?

	(1)	X is required by any applicable law, as modified by
the practice of any relevant governmental revenue authority,
to make any deduction or withholding in respect of which X
would not be required to pay an additional amount to Y under
Section 2(d)(i)(4);

	(2)	X does not so deduct or withhold; and

	(3)	a liability resulting from such Tax is assessed
directly against X,

then, except to the extent Y has satisfied or then satisfies the
liability resulting from such Tax, Y will promptly pay to X the
amount of such liability (including any related liability for
interest, but including any related liability for penalties only
if Y has failed to comply with or perform any agreement contained
in Section 4(a)(i), 4(a)(iii) or 4(d)).

(e)	Default Interest; Other Amounts.  Prior to the occurrence or
effective designation of an Early Termination Date in respect of the
relevant Transaction, a party that defaults in the performance of any
payment obligation will, to the extent permitted by law and subject to
Section 6(c), be required to pay interest (before as well as after
judgment) on the overdue amount to the other party on demand in the
same currency as such overdue amount, for the period from (and
including) the original due date for payment to (but excluding) the
date of actual payment, at the Default Rate.  Such interest will be
calculated on the basis of daily compounding and the actual number of
days elapsed.  If, prior to the occurrence or effective designation of
an Early Termination Date in respect of the relevant Transaction, a
party defaults in the performance of any obligation required to be
settled by delivery, it will compensate the other party on demand if
and to the extent provided for in the relevant Confirmation or
elsewhere in this Agreement.

3.	Representations

Each party represents to the other party (which representations will be
deemed to be repeated by each party on each date on which a Transaction
is entered into and, in the case of the representations in Section
3(f), at all times until the termination of this Agreement) that:?

(a)	Basic Representations.

	(i)	Status.  It is duly organized and validly existing under the
laws of the jurisdiction of its organization or incorporation
and, if relevant under such laws, in good standing;

	(ii)	Powers.  It has the power to execute this Agreement and any
other documentation relating to this Agreement to which it is a
party, to deliver this Agreement and any other documentation
relating to this Agreement that it is required by this Agreement
to deliver and to perform its obligations under this Agreement
and any obligations it has under any Credit Support Document to
which it is a party and has taken all necessary action to
authorize such execution, delivery and performance;

	(iii)	No Violation or Conflict.  Such execution, delivery and
performance do not violate or conflict with any law applicable to
it, any provision of its constitutional documents, any order or
judgment of any court or other agency of government applicable to
it or any of its assets or any contractual restriction binding on
or affecting it or any of its assets;

	(iv)	Consents.  All governmental and other consents that are
required to have been obtained by it with respect to this
Agreement or any Credit Support Document to which it is a party
have been obtained and are in full force and effect and all
conditions of any such consents have been complied with; and

	(v)	Obligations Binding.  Its obligations under this Agreement and
any Credit Support Document to which it is a party constitute its
legal, valid and binding obligations, enforceable in accordance
with their respective terms (subject to applicable bankruptcy,
reorganization, insolvency, moratorium or similar laws affecting
creditors' rights generally and subject, as to enforceability, to
equitable principles of general application (regardless of
whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding in equity or at
law)).

(b)	Absence of Certain Events.  No Event of Default or Potential
Event of Default or, to its knowledge, Termination Event with respect
to it has occurred and is continuing and no such event or circumstance
would occur as a result of its entering into or performing its
obligations under this Agreement or any Credit Support Document to
which it is a party.

(c)	Absence of Litigation.  There is not pending or, to its
knowledge, threatened against it or any of its Affiliates any action,
suit or proceeding at law or in equity or before any court, tribunal,
governmental body, agency or official or any arbitrator that is likely
to affect the legality, validity or enforceability against it of this
Agreement or any Credit Support Document to which it is a party or its
ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement or such Credit
Support Document.

(d)	Accuracy of Specified Information.  All applicable information
that is furnished in writing by or on behalf of it to the other party
and is identified for the purpose of this Section 3(d) in the Schedule
is, as of the date of the information, true, accurate and complete in
every material aspect.

(e)	Payer Tax Representation.  Each representation specified in the
Schedule as being made by it for the purpose of this Section 3(e) is
accurate and true.

(f)	Payee Tax Representations.  Each representation specified in the
Schedule as being made by it for the purpose of this Section 3(f) is
accurate and true.

4.	Agreements

Each party agrees with the other that, so long as either party has or
may have any obligation under this Agreement or under any Credit
Support Document to which it is a party:?

(a)	Furnish Specified Information.  It will deliver to the other
party or, in certain cases under subparagraph (iii) below, to such
government or taxing authority as the other party reasonably directs:?

	(i)	any forms, documents or certificates relating to taxation
specified in the Schedule or any Confirmation;

	(ii)	any other documents specified in the Schedule or any
Confirmation; and

	(iii)	upon reasonable demand by such other party, any form or
document that may be required or reasonably requested in writing
in order to allow such other party or its Credit Support Provider
to make a payment under this Agreement or any applicable Credit
Support Document without any deduction or withholding for or on
account of any Tax or with such deduction or withholding at a
reduced rate (so long as the completion, execution or submission
of such form or document would not materially prejudice the legal
or commercial position of the party in receipt of such demand),
with any such form or document to be accurate and completed in a
manner reasonably satisfactory to such other party and to be
executed and to be delivered with any reasonably required
certification,

in each case by the date specified in the Schedule or such Confirmation
or, if none is specified, as soon as reasonably practicable.

(b)	Maintain Authorizations.  It will use all reasonable efforts to
maintain in full force and effect all consents of any governmental or
other authority that are required to be obtained by it with respect to
this Agreement or any Credit Support Document to which it is a party
and will use all reasonable efforts to obtain any that may become
necessary in the future.

(c)	Comply with Laws.  It will comply in all material respects with
all applicable laws and orders to which it may be subject if failure so
to comply would materially impair its ability to perform its
obligations under this Agreement or any Credit Support Document to
which it is a party.

(d)	Tax Agreement.  It will give notice of any failure of a
representation made by it under Section 3(f) to be accurate and true
promptly upon learning of such failure.

(e)	Payment of Stamp Tax.  Subject to Section 11, it will pay any
Stamp Tax levied or imposed upon it or in respect of its execution or
performance of this Agreement by a jurisdiction in which it is
incorporated, organized, managed and controlled, or considered to have
its seat, or in which a branch or office through which it is acting for
the purpose of this Agreement is located ("Stamp Tax Jurisdiction") and
will indemnify the other party against any Stamp Tax levied or imposed
upon the other party or in respect of the other party's execution or
performance of this Agreement by any such Stamp Tax Jurisdiction which
is not also a Stamp Tax Jurisdiction with respect to the other party.


5.	Events of Default and Termination Events

(a)	Events of Default.  The occurrence at any time with respect to a
party or, if applicable, any Credit Support Provider of such party or
any Specified Entity of such party of any of the following events
constitutes an event of default (an "Event of Default") with respect to
such party:?

	(i)	Failure to Pay or Deliver.  Failure by the party to make, when
due, any payment under this Agreement or delivery under Section
2(a)(i) or 2(e) required to be made by it if such failure is not
remedied on or before the third Local Business Day after notice
of such failure is given to the party;

	(ii)	Breach of Agreement.  Failure by the party to comply with
or perform any agreement or obligation (other than an obligation
to make any payment under this Agreement or delivery under
Section 2(a)(i) or 2(e) or to give notice of a Termination Event
or any agreement or obligation under Section 4(a)(i), 4(a)(iii)
or 4(d)) to be complied with or performed by the party in
accordance with this Agreement if such failure is not remedied on
or before the thirtieth day after notice of such failure is given
to the party;

	(iii)	Credit Support Default.

(1)	Failure by the party or any Credit Support Provider of
such party to comply with or perform any agreement or
obligation to be complied with or performed by it in
accordance with any Credit Support Document if such failure
is continuing after any applicable grace period has elapsed;

(2)	the expiration or termination of such Credit Support
Document or the failing or ceasing of such Credit Support
Document to be in full force and effect for the purpose of
this Agreement (in either case other than in accordance with
its terms) prior to the satisfaction of all obligations of
such party under each Transaction to which such Credit
Support Document relates without the written consent of the
other party; or

(3)	the party or such Credit Support Provider disaffirms,
disclaims, repudiates or rejects, in whole or in part, or
challenges the validity of, such Credit Support Document;

(iv)	Misrepresentation.  A representation (other than a
representation under Section 3(e) or (f)) made or repeated or
deemed to have been made or repeated by the party or any Credit
Support Provider of such party in this Agreement or any Credit
Support Document proves to have been incorrect or misleading in
any material respect when made or repeated or deemed to have been
made or repeated;

(v)	Default under Specified Transaction.  The party, any Credit
Support Provider of such party or any applicable Specified Entity
of such party (1) defaults under a Specified Transaction and,
after giving effect to any applicable notice requirement or grace
period, there occurs a liquidation of, an acceleration of
obligations under, or an early termination of, that Specified
Transaction, (2) defaults, after giving effect to any applicable
notice requirement or grace period, in making any payment or
delivery due on the last payment, delivery or exchange date of,
or any payment on early termination of, a Specified Transaction
(or such default continues for at least three Local Business Days
if there is no applicable notice requirement or grace period) or
(3) disaffirms, disclaims, repudiates or rejects, in whole or in
part, a Specified Transaction (or such action is taken by any
person or entity appointed or empowered to operate it or act on
its behalf);

(vi)	Cross Default.  If "Cross Default" is specified in the
Schedule as applying to the party, the occurrence or existence of
(1) a default, event of default or other similar condition or
event (however
described) in respect of such party, any Credit Support Provider
of such party or any applicable Specified Entity of such party
under one or more agreements or instruments relating to Specified
Indebtedness of any of them (individually or collectively) in an
aggregate amount of not less than the applicable Threshold Amount
(as specified in the Schedule) which has resulted in such
Specified Indebtedness becoming, or becoming capable at such time
of being declared, due and payable under such agreements or
instruments, before it would otherwise have been due and payable
or (2) a default by such party, such Credit Support Provider or
such Specified Entity (individually or collectively) in making
one or more payments on the due date thereof in an aggregate
amount of not less than the applicable Threshold Amount under
such agreements or instruments (after giving effect to any
applicable notice requirement or grace period);

(vii)	Bankruptcy.  The party, any Credit Support Provider of such
party or any applicable Specified Entity of such party:?

	(1) is dissolved (other than pursuant to a consolidation,
amalgamation or merger); (2) becomes insolvent or is unable
to pay its debts or fails or admits in writing its inability
generally to pay its debts as they become due; (3) makes a
general assignment, arrangement or composition with or for
the benefit of its creditors; (4) institutes or has
instituted against it a proceeding seeking a judgment of
insolvency or bankruptcy or any other relief under any
bankruptcy or insolvency law or other similar law affecting
creditors' rights, or a petition is presented for its
winding-up or liquidation, and, in the case of any such
proceeding or petition instituted or presented against it,
such proceeding or petition (A) results in a judgment of
insolvency or bankruptcy or the entry of an order for relief
or the making of an order for its winding-up or liquidation
or (B) is not dismissed, discharged, stayed or restrained in
each case within 30 days of the institution or presentation
thereof; (5) has a resolution passed for its winding-up,
official management or liquidation (other than pursuant to a
consolidation, amalgamation or merger); (6) seeks or becomes
subject to the appointment of an administrator, provisional
liquidator, conservator, receiver, trustee, custodian or
other similar official for it or for all or substantially all
its assets; (7) has a secured party take possession of all or
substantially all its assets or has a distress, execution,
attachment, sequestration or other legal process levied,
enforced or sued on or against all or substantially all its
assets and such secured party maintains possession, or any
such process is not dismissed, discharged, stayed or
restrained, in each case within 30 days thereafter; (8)
causes or is subject to any event with respect to it which,
under the applicable laws of any jurisdiction, has an
analogous effect to any of the events specified in clauses
(1) to (7) (inclusive); or (9) takes any action in
furtherance of, or indicating its consent to, approval of, or
acquiescence in, any of the foregoing acts; or

(viii)	Merger Without Assumption.  The party or any Credit
Support Provider of such party consolidates or amalgamates with,
or merges with or into, or transfers all or substantially all its
assets to, another entity and, at the time of such consolidation,
amalgamation, merger or transfer:?

	(1)	the resulting, surviving or transferee entity fails to
assume all the obligations of such party or such Credit
Support Provider under this Agreement or any Credit Support
Document to which it or its predecessor was a party by
operation of law or pursuant to an agreement reasonably
satisfactory to the other party to this Agreement; or

	(2)	the benefits of any Credit Support Document fail to
extend (without the consent of the other party) to the
performance by such resulting, surviving or transferee
entity of its obligations under this Agreement.

(b)	Termination Events.  The occurrence at any time with respect to a
party or, if applicable, any Credit Support Provider of such party or
any Specified Entity of such party of any event specified below
constitutes an Illegality if the event is specified in (i) below, a Tax
Event if the event is specified in (ii) below or a Tax Event Upon
Merger if the event is specified in (iii) below, and, if specified to
be applicable, a Credit Event Upon Merger if the event is specified
pursuant to (iv) below or an Additional Termination Event if the event
is specified pursuant to (v) below:?

	(i)	Illegality.  Due to the adoption of, or any change in, any
applicable law after the date on which a Transaction is entered
into, or due to the promulgation of, or any change in, the
interpretation by any court, tribunal or regulatory authority
with competent jurisdiction of any applicable law after such
date, it becomes unlawful (other than as a result of a breach by
the party of Section 4(b)) for such party (which will be the
Affected Party):?

(1)	to perform any absolute or contingent obligation to
make a payment or delivery or to receive a payment or
delivery in respect of such Transaction or to comply with
any other material provision of this Agreement relating to
such Transaction; or

(2)	to perform, or for any Credit Support Provider of such
party to perform, any contingent or other obligation which
the party (or such Credit Support Provider) has under any
Credit Support Document relating to such Transaction;

	(ii)	Tax Event.  Due to (x) any action taken by a taxing
authority, or brought in a court of competent jurisdiction, on or
after the date on which a Transaction is entered into (regardless
of whether such action is taken or brought with respect to a
party to this Agreement) or (y) a Change in Tax Law, the party
(which will be the Affected Party) will, or there is a
substantial likelihood that it will, on the next succeeding
Scheduled Payment Date (1) be required to pay to the other party
an additional amount in respect of an Indemnifiable Tax under
Section 2(d)(i)(4) (except in respect of interest under Section
2(e), 6(d)(ii) or 6(e)) or (2) receive a payment from which an
amount is required to be deducted or withheld for or on account
of a Tax (except in respect of interest under Section 2(e),
6(d)(ii) or 6(e)) and no additional amount is required to be paid
in respect of such Tax under Section 2(d)(i)(4) (other than by
reason of Section 2(d)(i)(4)(A) or (B));

	(iii)	Tax Event Upon Merger.  The party (the "Burdened Party") on
the next succeeding Scheduled Payment Date will either (1) be
required to pay an additional amount in respect of an
Indemnifiable Tax under Section 2(d)(i)(4) (except in respect of
interest under Section 2(e), 6(d)(ii) or 6(e)) or (2) receive a
payment from which an amount has been deducted or withheld for or
on account of any Indemnifiable Tax in respect of which the other
party is not required to pay an additional amount (other than by
reason of Section 2(d)(i)(4)(A) or (B)), in either case as a
result of a party consolidating or amalgamating with, or merging
with or into, or transferring all or substantially all its assets
to, another entity (which will be the Affected Party) where such
action does not constitute an event described in Section
5(a)(viii);

	(iv)	Credit Event Upon Merger.  If "Credit Event Upon Merger" is
specified in the Schedule as applying to the party, such party
("X"), any Credit Support Provider of X or any applicable
Specified Entity of X consolidates or amalgamates with, or merges
with or into, or transfers all or substantially all its assets
to, another entity and such action does not constitute an event
described in Section 5(a)(viii) but the creditworthiness of the
resulting, surviving or transferee entity is materially weaker
than that of X, such Credit Support Provider or such Specified
Entity, as the case may be, immediately prior to such action
(and, in such event, X or its successor or transferee, as
appropriate, will be the Affected Party); or

	(v)	Additional Termination Event.  If any "Additional Termination
Event" is specified in the Schedule or any Confirmation as
applying, the occurrence of such event (and, in such event, the
Affected Party or Affected Parties shall be as specified for such
Additional Termination Event in the Schedule or such
Confirmation).

(c)	Event of Default and Illegality.  If an event or circumstance
which would otherwise constitute or give rise
to an Event of Default also constitutes an Illegality, it will be
treated as an Illegality and will not constitute an
Event of Default.

6.	Early Termination

(a)	Right to Terminate Following Event of Default.  If at any time an
Event of Default with respect to a party (the "Defaulting Party") has
occurred and is then continuing, the other party (the "Non-defaulting
Party") may, by not more than 20 days notice to the Defaulting Party
specifying the relevant Event of Default, designate a day not earlier
than the day such notice is effective as an Early Termination Date in
respect of all outstanding Transactions.  If, however, "Automatic Early
Termination" is specified in the Schedule as applying to a party, then
an Early Termination Date in respect of all outstanding Transactions
will occur immediately upon the occurrence with respect to such party
of an Event of Default specified in Section 5(a)(vii)(1), (3), (5), (6)
or, to the extent analogous thereto, (8), and as of the time
immediately preceding the institution of the relevant proceeding or the
presentation of the relevant petition upon the occurrence with respect
to such party of an Event of Default specified in Section 5(a)(vii)(4)
or, to the extent analogous thereto, (8).

(b)	Right to Terminate Following Termination Event.

	(i)	Notice.  If a Termination Event occurs, an Affected Party
will, promptly upon becoming aware of it, notify the other party,
specifying the nature of that Termination Event and each Affected
Transaction and will also give such other information about that
Termination Event as the other party may reasonably require.

	(ii)	Transfer to Avoid Termination Event.  If either an
Illegality under Section 5(b)(i)(1) or a Tax Event occurs and
there is only one Affected Party, or if a Tax Event Upon Merger
occurs and the Burdened Party is the Affected Party, the Affected
Party will, as a condition to its right to designate an Early
Termination Date under Section 6(b)(iv), use all reasonable
efforts (which will not require such party to incur a loss,
excluding immaterial, incidental expenses) to transfer within 20
days after it gives notice under Section 6(b)(i) all its rights
and obligations under this Agreement in respect of the Affected
Transactions to another of its Offices or Affiliates so that such
Termination Event ceases to exist.

	If the Affected Party is not able to make such a transfer it will
give notice to the other party to that effect within such 20 day
period, whereupon the other party may effect such a transfer
within 30 days after the notice is given under Section 6(b)(i).

	Any such transfer by a party under this Section 6(b)(ii) will be
subject to and conditional upon the prior written consent of the
other party, which consent will not be withheld if such other
party's policies in effect at such time would permit it to enter
into transactions with the transferee on the terms proposed.

	(iii)	Two Affected Parties.  If an Illegality under Section
5(b)(i)(1) or a Tax Event occurs and there are two Affected
Parties, each party will use all reasonable efforts to reach
agreement within 30 days after notice thereof is given under
Section 6(b)(i) on action to avoid that Termination Event.

	(iv)	Right to Terminate.  If:?

	(1)	a transfer under Section 6(b)(ii) or an agreement under
Section 6(b)(iii), as the case may be, has not been effected
with respect to all Affected Transactions within 30 days after
an Affected Party gives notice under Section 6(b)(i); or

	(2)	an Illegality under Section 5(b)(i)(2), a Credit Event
Upon Merger or an Additional Termination Event occurs, or a
Tax Event Upon Merger occurs and the Burdened Party is not the
Affected Party,

either party in the case of an Illegality, the Burdened Party in
the case of a Tax Event Upon Merger, any Affected Party in the
case of a Tax Event or an Additional Termination Event if there
is more than one Affected Party, or the party which is not the
Affected Party in the case of a Credit Event Upon Merger or an
Additional Termination Event if there is only one Affected Party
may, by not more than 20 days notice to the other party and
provided that the relevant Termination Event is then continuing,
designate a day not earlier than the day such notice is effective
as an Early Termination Date in respect of all Affected
Transactions.

(c)	Effect of Designation.

	(i)	If notice designating an Early Termination Date is given under
Section 6(a) or (b), the Early Termination Date will occur on the
date so designated, whether or not the relevant Event of Default
or Termination Event is then continuing.

	(ii)	Upon the occurrence or effective designation of an Early
Termination Date, no further payments or deliveries under Section
2(a)(i) or 2(e) in respect of the Terminated Transactions will be
required to be made, but without prejudice to the other
provisions of this Agreement.  The amount, if any, payable in
respect of an Early Termination Date shall be determined pursuant
to Section 6(e).

(d)	Calculations.

	(i)	Statement.  On or as soon as reasonably practicable following
the occurrence of an Early Termination Date, each party will make
the calculations on its part, if any, contemplated by Section
6(e) and will provide to the other party a statement (1) showing,
in reasonable detail, such calculations (including all relevant
quotations and specifying any amount payable under Section 6(e))
and (2) giving details of the relevant account to which any
amount payable to it is to be paid.  In the absence of written
confirmation from the source of a quotation obtained in
determining a Market Quotation, the records of the party
obtaining such quotation will be conclusive evidence of the
existence and accuracy of such quotation.

	(ii)	Payment Date.  An amount calculated as being due in respect
of any Early Termination Date under Section 6(e) will be payable
on the day that notice of the amount payable is effective (in the
case of an Early Termination Date which is designated or occurs
as a result of an Event of Default) and on the day which is two
Local Business Days after the day on which notice of the amount
payable is effective (in the case of an Early Termination Date
which is designated as a result of a Termination Event).  Such
amount will be paid together with (to the extent permitted under
applicable law) interest thereon (before as well as after
judgment) in the Termination Currency, from (and including) the
relevant Early Termination Date to (but excluding) the date such
amount is paid, at the Applicable Rate.  Such interest will be
calculated on the basis of daily compounding and the actual
number of days elapsed.

(e)	Payments on Early Termination.  If an Early Termination Date
occurs, the following provisions shall apply based on the parties'
election in the Schedule of a payment measure, either "Market
Quotation" or "Loss", and a payment method, either the "First Method"
or the "Second Method".  If the parties fail to designate a payment
measure or payment method in the Schedule, it will be deemed that
"Market Quotation" or the "Second Method", as the case may be, shall
apply.  The amount, if any, payable in respect of an Early Termination
Date and determined pursuant to this Section will be subject to any
Set-off.

	(i)	Events of Default.  If the Early Termination Date results from
an Event of Default:?

	(1)	First Method and Market Quotation.  If the First Method
and Market Quotation apply, the Defaulting Party will pay to
the Non-defaulting Party the excess, if a positive number, of
(A) the sum of the Settlement Amount (determined by the Non-
defaulting Party) in respect of the Terminated Transactions
and the Termination Currency Equivalent of the Unpaid Amounts
owing to the Non-defaulting Party over (B) the Termination
Currency Equivalent of the Unpaid Amounts owing to the
Defaulting Party.

(2)	First Method and Loss.  If the First Method and Loss
apply, the Defaulting Party will pay to the Non-defaulting
Party, if a positive number, the Non-defaulting Party's Loss
in respect of this Agreement.

(3)	Second Method and Market Quotation.  If the Second Method
and Market Quotation apply, an amount will be payable equal to
(A) the sum of the Settlement Amount (determined by the Non-
defaulting Party) in respect of the Terminated Transactions
and the Termination Currency Equivalent of the Unpaid Amounts
owing to the Non-defaulting Party less (B) the Termination
Currency Equivalent of the Unpaid Amounts owing to the
Defaulting Party.  If that amount is a positive number, the
Defaulting Party will pay it to the Non-defaulting Party; if
it is a negative number, the Non-defaulting Party will pay the
absolute value of that amount to the Defaulting Party.

(4)	Second Method and Loss.  If the Second Method and Loss
apply, an amount will be payable equal to the Non-defaulting
Party's Loss in respect of this Agreement.  If that amount is
a positive number, the Defaulting Party will pay it to the
Non-defaulting Party; if it is a negative number, the Non-
defaulting Party will pay the absolute value of that amount to
the Defaulting Party.

(ii)	Termination Events.  If the Early Termination Date results
from a Termination Event:?

(1)	One Affected Party.  If there is one Affected Party, the
amount payable will be determined in accordance with Section
6(e)(i)(3), if Market Quotation applies, or Section
6(e)(i)(4), if Loss applies, except that, in either case,
references to the Defaulting Party and to the Non-defaulting
Party will be deemed to be references to the Affected Party
and the party which is not the Affected Party, respectively,
and, if Loss applies and fewer than all the Transactions are
being terminated, Loss shall be calculated in respect of all
Terminated Transactions.

(2)	Two Affected Parties.  If there are two Affected
Parties:?

	(A)	if Market Quotation applies, each party will
determine a Settlement Amount in respect of the
Terminated Transactions, and an amount will be payable
equal to (I) the sum of (a) one-half of the difference
between the Settlement Amount of the party with the
higher Settlement Amount ("X") and the Settlement Amount
of the party with the lower Settlement Amount ("Y") and
(b) the Termination Currency Equivalent of the Unpaid
Amounts owing to X less (II) the Termination Currency
Equivalent of the Unpaid Amounts owing to Y; and

	(B) 	if Loss applies, each party will determine its
Loss in respect of this Agreement (or, if fewer than all
the Transactions are being terminated, in respect of all
Terminated Transactions) and an amount will be payable
equal to one-half of the difference between the Loss of
the party with the higher Loss ("X") and the Loss of the
party with the lower Loss ("Y").

	If the amount payable is a positive number, Y will pay it to X;
if it is a negative number, X will pay the absolute value of
that amount to Y.

(iii)	Adjustment for Bankruptcy.  In circumstances where an
Early Termination Date occurs because "Automatic Early
Termination" applies in respect of a party, the amount determined
under this Section 6(e) will be subject to such adjustments as
are appropriate and permitted by law to reflect any payments or
deliveries made by one party to the other under this Agreement
(and retained by such other party) during the period from the
relevant Early Termination Date to the date for payment
determined under Section 6(d)(ii).

(iv)	Pre-Estimate.  The parties agree that if Market Quotation
applies an amount recoverable under this Section 6(e) is a
reasonable pre-estimate of loss and not a penalty.  Such amount
is payable for the loss of bargain and the loss of protection
against future risks and except as otherwise provided in this
Agreement neither party will be entitled to recover any
additional damages as a consequence of such losses.

7.	Transfer

Subject to Section 6(b)(ii), neither this Agreement nor any interest or
obligation in or under this Agreement may be transferred (whether by
way of security or otherwise) by either party without the prior written
consent of the other party, except that:?

(a)	a party may make such a transfer of this Agreement pursuant to a
consolidation or amalgamation with, or merger with or into, or transfer
of all or substantially all its assets to, another entity (but without
prejudice to any other right or remedy under this Agreement); and

(b)	a party may make such a transfer of all or any part of its
interest in any amount payable to it from a Defaulting Party under
Section 6(e).

Any purported transfer that is not in compliance with this Section will
be void.

8.	Contractual Currency

(a)	Payment in the Contractual Currency.  Each payment under this
Agreement will be made in the relevant currency specified in this
Agreement for that payment (the "Contractual Currency").  To the extent
permitted by applicable law, any obligation to make payments under this
Agreement in the Contractual Currency will not be discharged or
satisfied by any tender in any currency other than the Contractual
Currency, except to the extent such tender results in the actual
receipt by the party to which payment is owed, acting in a reasonable
manner and in good faith in converting the currency so tendered into
the Contractual Currency, of the full amount in the Contractual
Currency of all amounts payable in respect of this Agreement.  If for
any reason the amount in the Contractual Currency so received falls
short of the amount in the Contractual Currency payable in respect of
this Agreement, the party required to make the payment will, to the
extent permitted by applicable law, immediately pay such additional
amount in the Contractual Currency as may be necessary to compensate
for the shortfall.  If for any reason the amount in the Contractual
Currency so received exceeds the amount in the Contractual Currency
payable in respect of this Agreement, the party receiving the payment
will refund promptly the amount of such excess.

(b)	Judgments.  To the extent permitted by applicable law, if any
judgment or order expressed in a currency other than the Contractual
Currency is rendered (i) for the payment of any amount owing in respect
of this Agreement, (ii) for the payment of any amount relating to any
early termination in respect of this Agreement or (iii) in respect of a
judgment or order of another court for the payment of any amount
described in (i) or (ii) above, the party seeking recovery, after
recovery in full of the aggregate amount to which such party is
entitled pursuant to the judgment or order, will be entitled to receive
immediately from the other party the amount of any shortfall of the
Contractual Currency received by such party as a consequence of sums
paid in such other currency and will refund promptly to the other party
any excess of the Contractual Currency received by such party as a
consequence of sums paid in such other currency if such shortfall or
such excess arises or results from any variation between the rate of
exchange at which the Contractual Currency is converted into the
currency of the judgment or order for the purposes of such judgment or
order and the rate of exchange at which such party is able, acting in a
reasonable manner and in good faith in converting the currency received
into the Contractual Currency, to purchase the Contractual Currency
with the amount of the currency of the judgment or order actually
received by such party.  The term "rate of exchange" includes, without
limitation, any premiums and costs of exchange payable in connection
with the purchase of or conversion into the Contractual Currency.

(c)	Separate Indemnities.  To the extent permitted by applicable law,
these indemnities constitute separate and independent obligations from
the other obligations in this Agreement, will be enforceable as
separate and independent causes of action, will apply notwithstanding
any indulgence granted by the party to which any payment is owed and
will not be affected by judgment being obtained or claim or proof being
made for any other sums payable in respect of this Agreement.

(d)	Evidence of Loss.  For the purpose of this Section 8, it will be
sufficient for a party to demonstrate that it would have suffered a
loss had an actual exchange or purchase been made.

9.	Miscellaneous

(a)	Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the entire
agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to its subject
matter and supersedes all oral communication and prior writings with
respect thereto.

(b)	Amendments.  No amendment, modification or waiver in respect of
this Agreement will be effective unless in writing (including a writing
evidenced by a facsimile transmission) and executed by each of the
parties or confirmed by an exchange of telexes or electronic messages
on an electronic messaging system.

(c)	Survival of Obligations.  Without prejudice to Sections 2(a)(iii)
and 6(c)(ii), the obligations of the parties under this Agreement will
survive the termination of any Transaction.

(d)	Remedies Cumulative.  Except as provided in this Agreement, the
rights, powers, remedies and privileges provided in this Agreement are
cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, powers, remedies and
privileges provided by law.

(e)	Counterparts and Confirmations.

	(i)	This Agreement (and each amendment, modification and waiver
in respect of it) may be executed and delivered in counterparts
(including by facsimile transmission), each of which will be
deemed an original.

(ii)	The parties intend that they are legally bound by the terms
of each Transaction from the moment they agree to those terms
(whether orally or otherwise).  A Confirmation shall be entered
into as soon as practicable and may be executed and delivered in
counterparts (including by facsimile transmission) or be created
by an exchange of telexes or by an exchange of electronic
messages on an electronic messaging system, which in each case
will be sufficient for all purposes to evidence a binding
supplement to this Agreement.  The parties will specify therein
or through another effective means that any such counterpart,
telex or electronic message constitutes a Confirmation.

(f)	No Waiver of Rights.  A failure or delay in exercising any right,
power or privilege in respect of this Agreement will not be presumed to
operate as a waiver, and a single or partial exercise of any right,
power or privilege will not be presumed to preclude any subsequent or
further exercise, of that right, power or privilege or the exercise of
any other right, power or privilege.

(g)	Headings.  The headings used in this Agreement are for
convenience of reference only and are not to affect the construction of
or to be taken into consideration in interpreting this Agreement.

10.	Offices; Multibranch Parties

(a)	If Section 10(a) is specified in the Schedule as applying, each
party that enters into a Transaction through an Office other than its
head or home office represents to the other party that, notwithstanding
the place of booking office or jurisdiction of incorporation or
organization of such party, the obligations of such party are the same
as if it had entered into the Transaction through its head or home
office.  This representation will be deemed to be repeated by such
party on each date on which a Transaction is entered into.

(b)	Neither party may change the Office through which it makes and
receives payments or deliveries for the purpose of a Transaction
without the prior written consent of the other party.

(c)	If a party is specified as a Multibranch Party in the Schedule,
such Multibranch Party may make and receive payments or deliveries
under any Transaction through any Office listed in the Schedule, and
the Office through which it makes and receives payments or deliveries
with respect to a Transaction will be specified in the relevant
Confirmation.

11.	Expenses

A Defaulting Party will, on demand, indemnify and hold harmless the
other party for and against all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses,
including legal fees and Stamp Tax, incurred by such other party by
reason of the enforcement and protection of its rights under this
Agreement or any Credit Support Document to which the Defaulting Party
is a party or by reason of the early termination of any Transaction,
including, but not limited to, costs of collection.

12.	Notices

(a)	Effectiveness.  Any notice or other communication in respect of
this Agreement may be given in any manner set forth below (except that
a notice or other communication under Section 5 or 6 may not be given
by facsimile transmission or electronic messaging system) to the
address or number or in accordance with the electronic messaging system
details provided (see the Schedule) and will be deemed effective as
indicated:?

	(i)	if in writing and delivered in person or by courier, on the
date it is delivered;

	(ii)	if sent by telex, on the date the recipient's answerback is
received;

	(iii)	if sent by facsimile transmission, on the date that
transmission is received by a responsible employee of the
recipient in legible form (it being agreed that the burden of
proving receipt will be on the sender and will not be met by a
transmission report generated by the sender's facsimile machine);

	(iv)	if sent by certified or registered mail (airmail, if
overseas) or the equivalent (return receipt requested), on the
date that mail is delivered or its delivery is attempted; or

	(v)	if sent by electronic messaging system, on the date that
electronic message is received,

unless the date of delivery (or attempted delivery) or that receipt, as
applicable, is not a Local Business Day or that communication is
delivered (or attempted) or received, as applicable, after the close of
business on a Local Business Day, in which case that communication
shall be deemed given and effective on the first following day that is
a Local Business Day.

(b)	Change of Addresses.  Either party may by notice to the other
change the address, telex or facsimile number or electronic messaging
system details at which notices or other communications are to be given
to it.

13.	Governing Law and Jurisdiction

(a)	Governing Law.  This Agreement will be governed by and construed
in accordance with the law specified in the Schedule.

(b)	Jurisdiction.  With respect to any suit, action or proceedings
relating to this Agreement ("Proceedings"), each party irrevocably:?

	(i)	submits to the jurisdiction of the English courts, if this
Agreement is expressed to be governed by English law, or to the
non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York
and the United States District Court located in the Borough of
Manhattan in New York City, if this Agreement is expressed to be
governed by the laws of the State of New York; and

	(ii)	waives any objection which it may have at any time to the
laying of venue of any Proceedings brought in any such court,
waives any claim that such Proceedings have been brought in an
inconvenient forum and further waives the right to object, with
respect to such Proceedings, that such court does not have any
jurisdiction over such party.

Nothing in this Agreement precludes either party from bringing
Proceedings in any other jurisdiction (outside, if this Agreement is
expressed to be governed by English law, the Contracting States, as
defined in Section 1(3) of the Civil Jurisdiction and Judgments Act
1982 or any modification, extension or re-enactment thereof for the
time being in force) nor will the bringing of Proceedings in any one or
more jurisdictions preclude the bringing of Proceedings in any other
jurisdiction.

(c)	Service of Process.  Each party irrevocably appoints the Process
Agent (if any) specified opposite its name in the Schedule to receive,
for it and on its behalf, service of process in any Proceedings.  If
for any reason any party's Process Agent is unable to act as such, such
party will promptly notify the other party and within 30 days appoint a
substitute process agent acceptable to the other party.  The parties
irrevocably consent to service of process given in the manner provided
for notices in Section 12.  Nothing in this Agreement will affect the
right of either party to serve process in any other manner permitted by
law.

(d)	Waiver of Immunities.  Each party irrevocably waives, to the
fullest extent permitted by applicable law, with respect to itself and
its revenues and assets (irrespective of their use or intended use),
all immunity on the grounds of sovereignty or other similar grounds
from (i) suit, (ii) jurisdiction of any court, (iii) relief by way of
injunction, order for specific performance or for recovery of
property, (iv) attachment of its assets (whether before or after
judgment) and (v) execution or enforcement of any judgment to which it
or its revenues or assets might otherwise be entitled in any
Proceedings in the courts of any jurisdiction and irrevocably agrees,
to the extent permitted by applicable law, that it will not claim any
such immunity in any Proceedings.

"Loss" means, with respect to this Agreement or one or more Terminated
Transactions, as the case may be, and a party, the Termination Currency
Equivalent of an amount that party reasonably determines in good faith
to be its total losses and costs (or gain, in which case expressed as a
negative number) in connection with this Agreement or that Terminated
Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions, as the case may be,
including any loss of bargain, cost of funding or, at the election of
such party but without duplication, loss or cost incurred as a result
of its terminating, liquidating, obtaining or reestablishing any hedge
or related trading position (or any gain resulting from any of them).
Loss includes losses and costs (or gains) in respect of any payment or
delivery required to have been made (assuming satisfaction of each
applicable condition precedent) on or before the relevant Early
Termination Date and not made, except, so as to avoid duplication, if
Section 6(e)(i)(1) or (3) or 6(e)(ii)(2)(A) applies.  Loss does not
include a party's legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses referred to

of the earliest date thereafter as is reasonably practicable.  A party
may (but need not) determine its Loss by reference to quotations of
relevant rates or prices from one or more leading dealers in the
relevant markets.

"Market Quotation" means, with respect to one or more Terminated
Transactions and a party making the determination, an amount determined
on the basis of quotations from Reference Market-makers.  Each
quotation will be for an amount, if any, that would be paid to such
party (expressed as a negative number) or by such party (expressed as a
positive number) in consideration of an agreement between such party
(taking into account any existing Credit Support Document with respect
to the obligations of such party) and the quoting Reference Market-
maker to enter into a transaction (the "Replacement Transaction") that
would have the effect of preserving for such party the economic
equivalent of any payment or delivery (whether the underlying
obligation was absolute or contingent and assuming the satisfaction of
each applicable condition precedent) by the parties under Section
2(a)(i) in respect of such Terminated Transaction or group of
Terminated Transactions that would, but for the occurrence of the
relevant Early Termination Date, have been required after that date.
For this purpose, Unpaid Amounts in respect of the Terminated
Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions are to be excluded but,
without limitation, any payment or delivery that would, but for the
relevant Early Termination Date, have been required (assuming
satisfaction of each applicable condition precedent) after that Early
Termination Date is to be included.  The Replacement Transaction would
be subject to such documentation as such party and the Reference
Market-maker may, in good faith, agree.  The party making the
determination (or its agent) will request each Reference Market-maker
to provide its quotation to the extent reasonably practicable as of the
same day and time (without regard to different time zones) on or as
soon as reasonably practicable after the relevant Early Termination
Date.  The day and time as of which those quotations are to be obtained
will be selected in good faith by the party obligated to make a
determination under Section 6(e), and, if each party is so obliged,
after consultation with the other.  If more than three quotations are
provided, the Market Quotation will be the arithmetic mean of the
quotations, without regard to the quotations having the highest and
lowest values.  If exactly three such quotations are provided, the
Market Quotation will be the quotation remaining after disregarding the
highest and lowest quotations.  For this purpose, if more than one
quotation has the same highest value or lowest value, then one of such
quotations shall be disregarded.  If fewer than three quotations are
provided, it will be deemed that the Market Quotation in respect of
such Terminated Transaction or group of Terminated Transactions cannot
be determined.

"Non-default Rate" means a rate per annum equal to the cost (without
proof or evidence of any actual cost) to the Non-defaulting party (as
certified by it) if it were to fund the relevant amount.

"Office" means a branch or office of a party, which may be such party's
head or home office.

notice or the lapse of time or both, would constitute an Event of
Default.

market selected by the party determining a Market Quotation in good
faith (a) from among dealers of the highest credit standing which

in deciding whether to offer or to make an extension of credit and (b)
to the extent practicable, from among such dealers having an office in
the same city.

"Relevant Jurisdiction" means, with respect to a party, the
jurisdictions (a) in which the party is incorporated, organized,
managed and controlled or considered to have its seat, (b) where an

relation to any payment, from or through which such payment is made.

"Scheduled Payment Date" means a date on which a payment or delivery is
to be made under Section 2(a)(i) with respect to a Transaction.

arising under this Agreement, another contract, applicable law or
otherwise) that is exercised by, or imposed on, such payer.

"Settlement Amount" means, with respect to a party and any Early
Termination Date, the sum of:?

(a)	the Termination Currency Equivalent of the Market Quotations
(whether positive or negative) for each Terminated Transaction or group
of Terminated Transactions for which a Market Quotation is determined;
and

(b)	such party's Loss (whether positive or negative and without
reference to any Unpaid Amounts) for each Terminated Transaction or
group of Terminated Transactions for which a Market Quotation cannot be
determined or would not (in the reasonable belief of the party making
the determination) produce a commercially reasonable result.

"Specified Indebtedness" means, subject to the Schedule, any obligation
(whether present or future, contingent or otherwise, as principal or
surety or otherwise) in respect of borrowed money.

transaction (including an agreement with respect thereto) now existing
or hereafter entered into between one party to this Agreement (or any

Credit Support Provider of such other party or any applicable Specified
Entity of such other party) which is a rate swap transaction, basis
swap, forward rate transaction, commodity swap, commodity option,
equity or equity index swap, equity or equity index option, bond
option, interest rate option, foreign exchange transaction, cap
transaction, floor transaction, collar transaction, currency swap
transaction, cross-currency rate swap transaction, currency option or
any other similar transaction (including any option with respect to any
of these transactions), (b) any combination of these transactions and
(c) any other transaction identified as a Specified Transaction in this
Agreement or the relevant confirmation.

Termination Currency determined by the party making the relevant
determination as being required to purchase such amount of such Other
Currency as at the relevant Early Termination Date, or, if the relevant
Market Quotation or Loss (as the case may be), is determined as of a
later date, that later date, with the Termination Currency at the rate
equal to the spot exchange rate of the foreign exchange agent (selected
as provided below) for the purchase of such Other Currency with the
Termination Currency at or about 11:00 a.m. (in the city in which such
foreign exchange agent is located) on such date as would be customary
for the determination of such a rate for the purchase of such Other
Currency for value on the relevant Early Termination Date or that later
date.  The foreign exchange agent will, if only one party is obliged to
make a determination under Section 6(e), be selected in good faith by
that party and otherwise will be agreed by the parties.

Upon Merger or, if specified to be applicable, a Credit Event Upon
Merger or an Additional Termination Event.

"Termination Rate" means a rate per annum equal to the arithmetic mean
of the cost (without proof or evidence of any actual cost) to each
party (as certified by such party) if it were to fund or of funding
such amounts.

"Unpaid Amounts" owing to any party means, with respect to an Early
Termination Date, the aggregate of (a) in respect of all Terminated
Transactions, the amounts that became payable (or that would have
become payable but for Section 2(a)(iii)) to such party under Section
2(a)(i) on or prior to such Early Termination Date and which remain
unpaid as at such Early Termination Date and (b) in respect of each
Terminated Transaction, for each obligation under Section 2(a)(i) which
was (or would have been but for Section 2(a)(iii)) required to be
settled by delivery to such party on or prior to such Early Termination
Date and which has not been so settled as at such Early Termination
Date, an amount equal to the fair market value of that which was (or
would have been) required to be delivered as of the originally
scheduled date for delivery, in each case together with (to the extent
permitted under applicable law) interest, in the currency of such
amounts, from (and including) the date such amounts or obligations were
or would have been required to have been paid or performed to (but
excluding) such Early Termination Date, at the Applicable Rate.  Such
amounts of interest will be calculated on the basis of daily
compounding and the actual number of days elapsed.  The fair market
value of any obligation referred to in clause (b) above shall be
reasonably determined by the party obliged to make the determination
under Section 6(e) or, if each party is so obliged, it shall be the
average of the Termination Currency Equivalents of the fair market
values reasonably determined by both parties.

pursuant to a trust agreement dated as of May 4, 2001, as amended and
restated as of May 24, 2001, and as amended as of July 12, 2001 (as
amended and restated, the "Trust Agreement").


Part 1.	Termination Provisions

In this Agreement:

and will not apply to Party B.  Solely with respect to payments
required to be made by Party A after the occurrence of an Early
Redemption Event with respect to the Class C Notes, the word
"third" in the final line of Section 5(a)(i) shall be replaced
with "12:00 noon New York City time of the first (or such other
time as may be mutually agreed to by Party A, Party B and the
Note Rating Agencies)".

(d) The "Automatic Early Termination" provisions of Section 6(a) will
not apply to Party A and will not apply to Party B.

(e) Payments on Early Termination.  For the purpose of Section 6(e)
of this Agreement, Market Quotation and the Second Method will
apply; provided, however, that in the case of an Event of Default
with respect to Party A as the Defaulting Party or a Termination
Event with respect to Party A as the Affected Party, the related
Settlement Amount, if negative, will be deemed to be zero if the
Market Quotation (as such term is modified pursuant to Part 1 (f)
below) cannot be determined.

the definition of Market Quotation in Section 14, in the case of
an Event of Default with respect to Party A as the Defaulting
Party or a Termination Event with respect to Party A as the
Affected Party, the Market Quotation, if negative, will be deemed
to be the negative quotation, if any, with the highest absolute
value received from any Reference Market-maker, even if only one
quotation is provided, with which Party B is able, using its best
efforts, to enter into a Replacement Transaction even if Party B
reasonably believes such Market Quotation would not produce a
commercially reasonable result.

(g) "Reference Market-maker" will not have the meaning specified in
Section 14, but will instead mean the following:

		"Reference Market-maker" means five leading dealers in the
relevant market selected by the party determining the
Market Quotation in good faith (a) from among dealers which
are rated not lower than investment grade by S&P and
Moody's which satisfy the criteria that such party applies
generally at that time in deciding whether to offer or make
an extension of credit and (b) to the extent practicable,
from among dealers having an office in the same city.

(h) "Termination Currency" means United States Dollars ("USD").

(i)	"Additional Termination Events" shall mean the following (with
Party B being the Affected Party, in each case):

(i)	On any Transfer Date following an Early Redemption Event, a
Nominal Liquidation Amount Deficit (determined after giving
effect to any reimbursement of such Nominal Liquidation
Amount Deficit on such Transfer Date), if any, for the
Class C Notes exceeds the amount on deposit in the Class C
Reserve sub-Account for the Class C Notes.

(ii)	On any Transfer Date following a sale of Receivables
pursuant to Section 9.02(a) of the Pooling and Servicing
Agreement, the sum of the amount on deposit in the
Principal Funding sub-Account for the Class C Notes and the
