does not appear 2005 report. the 2004 report, "Mercantile Mutual Fund'' was listed, along with "Merck" (line under the caption "WALNl]T STREET Securities" (line 4). the 2004 report shows, the "Merck" asset was sold 2004. The proceeds, explained page the ;2005 report, were "allocated money market.'' the 2005 report, line app,ears ''WALNUT STREET 
Money Market," the modest value code. Comprehended that caption are two sma11 money 
market holdings, Mercantile MutuafFund Conning"money mkt portfolio") and Cortland General Money Market (Cortland General Money Market first appeared the WALNUT 
STREET account 2005, subsequent the 2004 Merck safo Since, a:s money market 
holdings, Mercantile Mutjlal Fund and Cortland General Money Market are both the same 
character -as distinct from Merck shares stock and Mercantile Mutual Fund, separately listed the 4004 report -and are such small value, was convenient,. preparmg the 2005. report, proceed the basis hat both were covered bythe caption "WALNUT STREET Money
