FACSIMIL 8035.)4 .;i;;:..r:i have your letter August 2004 and appreciate the advice offered assist filing future reports. appreciate the security concers you have noted, but for the 
last four years these items report have been redacted due recognized 
securify issues. Part VII, you note that not required list the number shares Column Column D(1). However, due the number transactions occurring during the year each account, find necessary for list both the current numbers shares held well the number bought sold with each transaction ensure accurate reporting each trade. for listing the number acres each tract ofland, Part VIII noted that the acreage was being combined for purposes this report and would listed one asset the 2004 report. this new listing, will not include the amount acreage.

Vfithout this identifying informatior., can diffk:u!t 
differentiate between the different bonds held within each account and note the effect part calls. Part VII, page line 40, page line 72, page line 122, page 13, line 222, page 14, line 236, page 15, lines 267 and 270, and page 17, line 303, have taken your suggestion and listed each account with abbreviated name and partial number. This should resolve the security concerns and still allow identify each account. appreciate your explaining how handle noting asset when acquired result spin off from corporation already listed report (such Medco Health Solutions Inc. (Part VII, 17, Line 292 2003 report). lfl 
tlie future will make sure note such Spinoff from corporation) Column Part 11. Part VIII, Note (Vll-268), you are correct that the note read:(Vll-268) Funds this account were transferred the account listed line 269 this report. 
The following are responses the questions the middle your letter. Due the complexity report, have already started working 2004 report.

Part VII, page line 31, Column C(2) the value method code incorrect and should Part VII, page9, line 149, the asset, Duke was entirely disposed of, therefore the values columns C(1) (2)should left blank.

The name the investment Resources Capitol Group New changed RCG Companies, Inc. June 2003. Since the total number shares held the beginning ... and, lines 225 and 226, reported the sale shares remain. The asset listed lines 228 and 229 RCG duplicate those listed lines 225 and 226 and therefore will not listed 2004 report.

account that inadvertently omitted from 2003 report. This account was also closed during the year and the funds transferred into the 
Dreyfus account line 151. These corrections and additions 
After line 230 2003 report, need add the following asset that was inadvertently omitted from report: line 428 2003 report incorrectly reported the type income= 8(2). The corrected line should read: 2002 report Part VII, page 12, line 214, listed Financial Inc.. This was not listed Part VII 2003 report because could not find the asset apers and assumed that must have been annuity that had been incorrectly listed. Fortunately, 
that was life insurance policy that was donated. The corrected line should read: have been thorough possible reviewing records and accounts 
and hope that these responses answer your questions. The appropriate corrections 
and additions will reflected 2004 report when filed next year. you have 
any additional questions, please advise. Government Act 1978
