"Assignment of Leases") with respect to property located in Solomon Pond
Corporate Center, Marlborough, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, which Second
Mortgage specifies various Events of Default (as defined in the Second Loan

principal and other amounts due under this Note or the other Loan Documents, all
costs of collection or attempting to collect all sums due under this Note and
the other Loan Documents, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses.

applicable to all such "interest" and all provisions of the Note and other Loan
Documents governing, or relating to, the payment of such interest.

required to be made under this Note or any other Loan Document or for the

for any loss or damage resulting therefrom up to the value of the misapplied
funds and any interest chargeable thereto (and in this regard, (I) any act by an
employee or agent authorized to handle funds for any Person or Entity shall be
deemed to be the act of such Person or Entity, and (II) any representation made
or deemed made by Maker with respect to facts or circumstances that are
particularly susceptible to the control or knowledge, directly or indirectly, of
any constituent shareholder, partner, principal, trustee or beneficiary of
Maker, or any affiliate of same, shall be deemed to be the representation of
such partner, shareholder, principal, trustee, beneficiary or affiliate).
Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed to be a waiver of any right which the
Payee may have under any provision of the Bankruptcy Act of 1986, as amended, or
any successor legislation, to file a claim for the full amount of indebtedness
owed by Maker to Payee or to require that the Mortgaged Property shall continue
