intends to purchase and maintain a policy or policies of Directors and Officers

indemnify Indemnitee and Indemnitee's successors referred to in Section 17

is a party or witness to, or threatened to be made a party or witness to, or
otherwise involved in any Claim (other than a Claim by or in the right of the
Company to procure a judgment in its favor) by reason of the fact that
Indemnitee is or was a Director of the Company, or is or was serving at the
request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another
corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against all
Expenses, judgments, fines and penalties, actually incurred by Indemnitee in

proving otherwise shall be on the party claiming to diminish such
indemnification.  The termination of any Claim by judgment, order of court,
settlement, conviction or upon a plea of nolo contendre, or its equivalent,

                                       3

was a Director of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the
Company as a director, officer, employee, or agent of another corporation,
partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, against all Expenses
actually incurred by Indemnitee in connection with such Claim provided that such
indemnification for Expenses shall not apply to any Claim in which Indemnitee
shall have been finally adjudged to have engaged in willful misconduct or to
have acted in a manner which was knowingly fraudulent or deliberately dishonest,
unless (and only to the extent that) any court in which such Claim was brought
shall determine upon application, that despite the adjudication of liability but
in view of all the circumstances of the case, Indemnitee is fairly and
reasonably entitled to indemnity for such Expenses as such court shall deem
proper.  The Indemnitee shall be presumed to be entitled to indemnification
hereunder to the fullest extent possible and the burden of proving otherwise
shall be on the party claiming to diminish such indemnification.

         ---------                                                              
the scope or amount of coverage of the Company's D&O Insurance shall be reduced
from the scope and coverage in effect during the first year of this Agreement,
the Company agrees to hold harmless and indemnify the Indemnitee to the fullest
extent permitted by applicable law to the full extent of the coverage which is
in effect during the first year of this Agreement.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, the Company is not obligated to maintain any D&O Insurance.

     7.  SECTION 16(B) LIABILITY.  The Company shall not be liable under this
         -----------------------                                             
Agreement to make any payment in connection with any claim made against
Indemnitee for an accounting of profits made from the purchase or sale by
Indemnitee of securities of the Company within the meaning of Section 16(b) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and amendments thereto or similar provisions
of any state statutory law or common law.

     8.  INDEMNIFICATION OF EXPENSES OF SUCCESSFUL PARTY.  Notwithstanding any
         -----------------------------------------------                      
other provision of this Agreement, to the extent that Indemnitee has been
successful on the merits or otherwise, including the dismissal of an action
without prejudice or the settlement of an action without admission of liability,
in defense of any Claim or in defense of any claim, issue or matter therein,
Indemnitee shall be indemnified against all Expenses incurred in connection
therewith without the necessity of authorization in the specific case.

     9.  ADVANCEMENT OF EXPENSES.  Expenses incurred by the Indemnitee in

provided Indemnitee shall undertake the repay such Expense Advances to the
extent that it is ultimately determined that Indemnitee is not entitled to
indemnification.

                                       4

 
     10.  RIGHT OF INDEMNIFICATION UPON APPLICATION; PROCEDURE UPON APPLICATION.
          ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Any payment hereunder with respect to any judgment, fine or penalty shall be
made no later than 45 days after receipt by the Company of the written request
of Indemnitee, unless a determination has been made by a court of competent
jurisdiction, or unless a determination is made within said 45-day period by
independent legal counsel (appointed by the Company and approved by the
Indemnitee) in a written opinion that the Indemnitee has not met the relevant
standards for indemnification.  All payments of Expense Advances must be made
immediately in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section 9 except as
provided in this Section 10.

     The right to indemnification and the immediate right to Expense Advances
pending final determination of the right to indemnification or lack thereof, as
provided by this Agreement shall be enforceable by the Indemnitee in any court
of competent jurisdiction.  The burden of proving that indemnification is not
appropriate as provided in this Agreement or otherwise shall be on the party
claiming to diminish such indemnification.  The failure of the Company
(including its Board of Directors or independent legal counsel) to have made a
determination prior to the commencement of such action that indemnification is
proper in the circumstances because Indemnitee has met the applicable standard
of conduct, shall not be a defense to the action or create a presumption that
Indemnitee has not met the applicable standard of conduct.  Indemnitee's
expenses reasonably incurred in connection with successfully establishing has
right to indemnification, in whole or in part, with respect to any such Claim
shall also be paid by the Company under this Agreement immediately upon written
request in advance in accordance with the terms and conditions of Section 9.

     In the event of any demand by the Indemnitee for the indemnification with
respect to any judgment, fine or penalty hereunder or under the Company's By-
Laws, the Board of Directors of the Company shall either approve the
indemnification or shall designate independent legal counsel referred to above.
The obligations of the Company hereunder with respect to the payment of any
judgment, fine or penalty shall be subject to the condition that the independent
legal counsel shall not have determined (in a written opinion) that the
Indemnitee is not permitted to be indemnified under Applicable law.  The
obligation of the Company to make Expense Advances pursuant to this Agreement
shall be subject to the condition that, if, when and to the extent that the
independent legal counsel determines that the Indemnitee is not permitted to be
so indemnified under applicable law, the Company shall be entitled to be
reimbursed by the Indemnitee (who hereby agrees to reimburse the Company) for
all such amounts theretofore paid.  If the Indemnitee has commenced legal
proceedings (either before or after the determination by independent legal
counsel) in a court of competent jurisdiction to secure a determination that the
Indemnitee may be indemnified under this Agreement or otherwise, any
determination made by the independent legal counsel that the Indemnitee is not
permitted to be indemnified under applicable law shall not be binding, and the
Indemnitee shall not be required to reimburse the Company for any Expense
Advances and shall continue to be entitled to Expense Advances until a final
judicial determination is made with respect thereto (as to which all rights of
appeal therefrom have been exhausted or lapsed).  If there has been no
determination by the independent legal counsel or if the independent legal
counsel determines that the Indemnitee is not permitted to be indemnified in
whole or in part under applicable law, the Indemnitee shall have the right to
commence litigation in any court in the states of Massachusetts or Delaware
having subject matter jurisdiction thereof and in which venue is proper seeking
an initial determination by the court or challenging any such determination by
the independent legal counsel or any aspect thereof, and the Company hereby
consents to service of process and to appear in any such proceeding.

                                       5

 
     11.  CHANGE IN CONTROL.  The Company agrees that if there is a Change in
          -----------------                                                  
Control of the Company, then with respect to all matters thereafter arising
concerning the rights of the Indemnitee to indemnify payments and Expense
Advances under this Agreement or any other agreement or Company By-Law now or
hereafter in effect relating the Claims, the Company shall seek legal advice
only from independent counsel selected by the Indemnitee and approved by the
Company (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) who has not
otherwise performed services for the Company within the last ten years (other
than in connection with such matters) or for the Indemnitee.  Such counsel,
among other things, shall render its written opinion to the Company and the
Indemnitee as to whether and to what extent the Indemnitee is permitted to be
indemnified under applicable law.  The Company agrees to pay the reasonable fees
of such independent counsel and to indemnify such counsel against any and all
expenses (including attorneys, fees), claims, liabilities and damages relating
to this Agreement or its engagement pursuant hereto.

     12.  ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUST.  In the event of a Potential Change in
          ----------------------                                        
Control, the Company may, and upon the request of the Indemnitee shall, create a
Trust for the benefit of the Indemnitee (either alone or together with one or
more other indemnities) and from time to time fund such Trust in such amounts as
the Company's Board of Directors may determine to satisfy Expenses reasonably
anticipated to be incurred in connection with investigating, preparing for and
defending any Claim (which determination shall be made by the Company's Board of
Directors in good faith from time to time upon the request of the Indemnitee),
and all judgments, fines, penalties and settlement amounts of all Claims from
time to time paid or claimed, reasonably anticipated or proposed to be paid.
The term of any Trust established pursuant hereto shall provide that upon a
Change in Control (i) the Trust shall not be revoked or the principal thereof
invaded, without the written consent of the Indemnitee, (ii) the Trustee shall
advance, within two business days of a request by the Indemnitee, all Expenses
to the Indemnitee (and the Indemnitee hereby agrees to reimburse the Trust under
the circumstances under which the Indemnitee would be required to reimburse the
Company under this Agreement), (iii) the Trustee shall promptly pay to the
Indemnitee all amounts for which the Indemnitee shall be entitled to
indemnification pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise, and (iv) all unexpended
funds in such Trust shall revert to the Company upon a final determination by
the independent legal counsel or a court of competent jurisdiction, as the case
may be, that the Indemnitee has been fully indemnified under the terms of this
Agreement.  The Trustee shall be a person or entity satisfactory to the
Indemnitee.  Nothing in this Section 12 shall relieve the Company of any of its
obligations under this Agreement.

     13.  INDEMNIFICATION FOR ADDITIONAL EXPENSES.  The Company shall indemnify
          ---------------------------------------                              
the Indemnitee against all expenses (including attorneys, fees) and, if
requested by the Indemnitee, shall immediately advance such expenses to the
Indemnitee, which are incurred by the Indemnitee in connection with any claim
asserted or action brought by the Indemnitee for (i) indemnification or payment
of Expense Advances by the Company under this Agreement or any other agreement
or Company By-Law now or hereafter in effect relating to Claims, or (ii)
recovery under any D&O Insurance policies maintained by the Company, provided
the Indemnitee undertakes to repay such expenses to the extent that it is
ultimately determined that Indemnitee is not entitled to such indemnification,
Expense Advances, or insurance recovery, as the case may be.

                                       6

 
     14.  PARTIAL INDEMNIFICATION.  If Indemnitee is entitled under any
          -----------------------                                      
provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a
portion of the Expenses, judgments, fines or penalties actually and reasonably
incurred by him in the investigation, defense, appeal or settlement of any Claim
but not, however, for the total amount thereof, the Company shall nevertheless
indemnify Indemnitee for the portion of such Expenses, judgments, fines or
penalties to which Indemnitee is entitled.

     15.  AGREEMENT NOT EXCLUSIVE: SUBROGATION RIGHTS ETC.  This Agreement shall
          -----------------------------------------------                       
not be deemed exclusive of and shall not diminish any other rights Indemnitee
may have to be indemnified or insured by the Company, any subsidiary of the
Company or any other person or entity under any certificate of incorporation,

disinterested directors or otherwise, whether or not now in effect, and shall

necessary or desirable to secure such rights.  The Company shall not be liable
under this Agreement to make any payment in connection with any claim made

otherwise indemnifiable hereunder.

          -------------------------                                        
Company contained herein shall continue during the period Indemnitee is a
director, officer, employee or agent of the Company (or was serving at the
request of the Company as a director, officer, employee or agent of another
corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise) and shall
continue thereafter so long as Indemnitee shall be subject to any possible claim

all or substantially all of the business and/or assets of the Company, by

                                       7

 
     18.  NOTIFICATION AND DEFENSE OF CLAIM. Promptly after receipt of
          ---------------------------------                           
Indemnitee of notice of the commencement of any Claim, Indemnitee will, if a
claim in respect thereof is to be made against the Company under this Agreement,
notify the Company of the commencement thereof, but the omission so to notify
the Company will not relieve it from any liability which it may have to
Indemnitee hereunder.  With respect to any such Claim as to which Indemnitee
notifies the Company of the commencement thereof.

          (a)  The Company will be entitled to participate therein at its own
               expense; and

          (b)  Except as otherwise provided below, to the extent that it may
               wish, the Company jointly with any other indemnifying party
               similarly notified will be entitled to assume the defense
               thereof, with counsel satisfactory to Indemnitee.  After notice
               from the Company to Indemnitee of its election so to assume the
               defense thereof, the Company will not be liable to Indemnitee
               under this Agreement for any legal or other expenses subsequently
               incurred by Indemnitee in connection with the defense thereof
               other than reasonable costs of investigation or as otherwise
               provided below.  Indemnitee shall have the right to employ its
               own counsel with respect to such Claim, but the fees and expenses
               of such counsel incurred after notice from the Company of its
               assumption of the defense thereof with counsel satisfactory to
               Indemnitee shall be at the expense of Indemnitee unless (i) the
               employment of counsel by Indemnitee has been authorized by the
               Company (ii) Indemnitee shall have reasonably concluded that
               there may be a conflict of interest between the Company and
               Indemnitee in the conduct of the defense of such Claim, or (iii)
               the Company shall not in fact have employed counsel to assume the
               defense of such Claim, in each of which cases the fees and
               expenses of counsel for the Indemnitee shall be paid immediately
               by the Company.  The Company shall not be entitled to assume the
               defense of any Claim brought by or on behalf of the Company or as
               to which Indemnitee shall have made the conclusion provided for
               in (ii) above; and

          (c)  The Company shall not be liable to indemnify the Indemnitee under
               his Agreement for any amounts paid in settlement of any Claim
               effected without its written consent.  The Company shall not
               settle any Claim in  any manner which would impose any penalty or
               limitation on Indemnitee without Indemnitee's written consent.
               Neither the Company nor Indemnitee will unreasonably withhold
