Ladies and Gentlemen:

Partners hereby agree with the Dealer Manager as follows:

     1.  Representations and Warranties of the Partnership

     The Partnership represents and warrants to the Dealer Manager and each
dealer with whom the Dealer Manager has entered into or will enter into a
Selected Dealer Agreement in the form attached to this Agreement as Exhibit "A"
(said dealers being hereinafter called the "Dealers") that:

         1.1  A Registration Statement with respect to the Partnership has been
prepared by the Partnership in accordance with applicable requirements of the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and the applicable
rules and regulations (the "Rules and Regulations") of the Securities and
Exchange Commission (the "SEC") promulgated thereunder, covering the Units.
Said Registration Statement, which includes a preliminary prospectus, was filed
with the SEC on October __, 2000.  Copies of such Registration Statement and
each amendment thereto have been or will be delivered to the Dealer Manager.
(The Registration Statement and prospectus contained therein, as finally amended
and revised at the effective date of the Registration Statement, are
respectively hereinafter referred to as the "Registration Statement" and the
"Prospectus," except that if the prospectus first filed by the Partnership
pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the Securities Act shall differ from the
Prospectus, the term "Prospectus" shall also include the Prospectus filed
pursuant to Rule 424(b).)

         1.2  The Partnership has been duly and validly organized and formed as
a limited partnership under the Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act of the
State of Georgia with the power and authority to conduct its business as
described in the Prospectus.

         1.3  The Registration Statement and Prospectus comply with the
Securities Act and the Rules and Regulations and do not contain any untrue
statements of material facts or omit to state any material fact required to be
stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein not
