bar to or waiver of the same or any other right on any future occasion. This
Note is fully negotiable. In the event any payment received by Bank shall be
deemed to have been a voidable preference or fraudulent conveyance then the
obligations of the undersigned shall survive and shall not be discharged by said
payment notwithstanding return to Maker of this original Note. This Note shall
be governed by the laws of the State of New Hampshire. The obligations of the
undersigned, if more than one, shall be joint and several. The unenforceability
