The final Prospectus for a prior Series incorporated by reference herein is
hereby used as a preliminary Prospectus for the above-stated Series. The
narrative information and structure of the attached final Prospectus will be
substantially the same as that of the final Prospectus for this Series. Although
the incorporated Prospectus includes trusts as indicated therein, the specific
trusts included in this Series when deposited may differ from such trusts.
Information with respect to the actual trusts to be included, pricing, the
number of Units, dates and summary information regarding the characteristics of
securities to be deposited in this Series is not now available and will be
different since each Series has a unique Portfolio. Accordingly the information
contained herein with regard to the previous Series should be considered as
being included for informational purposes only. Ratings of the securities in
this Series are expected to be comparable to those of the securities deposited
in the previous Series. However, the Estimated Current Return for this Series
will depend on the interest rates and offering prices of the securities in this
Series and may vary materially from that of the previous Series.
A REGISTRATION STATEMENT RELATING TO THE UNITS OF THIS SERIES HAS BEEN FILED
WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION BUT HAS NOT YET BECOME EFFECTIVE.
THE INFORMATION IN THIS PROSPECTUS IS NOT COMPLETE AND MAY BE CHANGED. WE MAY
NOT SELL THESE SECURITIES UNTIL THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT FILED WITH THE

TO SELL THESE SECURITIES AND IS NOT SOLICITING AN OFFER TO BUY THESE SECURITIES
IN ANY STATE WHERE THE OFFER OR SALE IS NOT PERMITTED.
