With respect the first observation your letter May 29, 2007, perhaps confused. You refer Part VII, Page Line 23, Column and you observe that the (X) should used when asset was owned during previous reporting period but was exempt from disclosure. intended use the (X) for precisely that reason. This bank account which previously was not listed because did not meet the value requirement, but did meet the requirement 2006. concede that the (X) should more properly have been placed after rather than before the word Account, but otherwise thought was following the rules. reply your second observation more complicated. Mnd he._ inherited what have regularly listed ranch Shackelford County, Texas. She subsequently sold most the surface but retained the mineral interests. understand it, Royalty Interest-Parcel was mineral lease signed solely one sometime ago. During calendar year 2006, was determined that the entitled share the royalties. Thus, mid not actually purchase this interest.
