written waiver from the Lessor has first been obtained and, without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, no acceptance of rent subsequent to any default and no
condoning, excusing or overlooking by the Lessor on previous occasions of any default
nor any earlier written waiver will be taken to operate as a waiver by the Lessor or in
any way to defeat or affect the rights and remedies of the Lessor.
