REQUEST FOR CORRECTED FILING RECE 



Honorable Director of Patents and Trademarks 

P.O. Box 1450 

Alexandria, VA 22313-1450 

Dear Sir: 

In reviewing this application, it has been noticed that the Patent and Trademark Office has 
made an error in the filing receipt which also occurred in the Notice of Publication of the 
application. The surname of the first-named inventor is "Kirkby", not Kirby. The proper name 
is clearly set forth in the declaration and in papers filed by the applicant to date. 

It is therefore requested that the Patent and Trademark Office issue a corrected filing 
receipt, and update its records to properly identify the inventor Kirkby. 


August 19, 2003 


Respectfully submitted.
