Dear Mr. Taylor:

   Per our discussion on the property at 4407 South 16th Street, please refer 
to the attached sketch. The fire department inspector is requesting Transkrit 
to install a 1-hour fire wall in the facility in the position shown. This is 
a requirement to separate the production machine area from the open warehouse 
area. Also, another outside man-door exit is required as indicated.

   When the lease term is complete Transkrit would remove the internal fire 
wall if requested, but would prefer to leave the new exit door in place.

   If you would please get Mr. Jim Creager, the owner, to accept this 
proposal, the lease agreement could be finalized. If you have any questions, 
please call me as soon as possible.
