In furtherance of this, Lender hereby excuses such Excused Overadvance, and acknowledges that Borrower shall not be required to take my actions, or make. any payments to Lender, with respect to the Excused Overadvance. Lender and Borrower each agree that no Overadvance existing as of September 13, 2003 or later (including, without limitation, an Overadvance relating to the Overlap Letters of Credit) shall be deemed an Excused Overadvance, and Borrower shall be required to take all actions, and pay all fees and other expenses related thereto.

        For purposes of this Section 2.4, the "Overlap Letters of Credit" shall mean the following letters of credit issued by City National Bank relating to the following insurance policies:
