Dear Alan:
This  letter  will  confirm  our  understanding  regarding  the  extent  of your
salary continuation and other benefits to which you are entitled as a result  of
the termination of your employment on December 31, 1993.
For   the   36-month   salary   continuation   period   commencing   with   your
termination date on December  31, 1993, your compensation  at an annual rate  of
$765,000  with benefits as set forth below  and as described in, and subject the
conditions set  forth  in,  the  AlliedSignal Inc.  Severance  Plan  for  Senior
Executives,  will continue to be paid  through December 31, 1996 (the 'Severance
Period'). The Severance  Period includes  a ninety  (90) day  notice period  for
purposes of certain benefit programs. You will receive payment for earned unused
You  will  be eligible  for  full  bonus  consideration  for 1993. In  addition,
incentive compensation payments will be made under the Severance Plan for Senior
Executives  for  calendar  years  of   1994,  1995  and  1996.  Such   incentive
compensation  payments will  be based  on a  target bonus  percentage of  75% in
accordance with the Plan.
You  may  elect  to   retain  your  coverage  in   the  Group  Life  and  Health
Insurance  Programs at  active employee  rates through the  end of  the month in
which salary  continuation  ends;  provided, however,  group  life  and  medical
insurance will cease on the date you become eligible for similar coverage from a
subsequent employer.
Your  Executive  Life  coverage  of  $3,060,000  is 100%  vested and will remain
in force until  you reach  age 65.  At age 65,  ownership of  the company  owned
policies  ($3,060,000) will be transferred to you.  The cash value of the policy
will be taxable to you  at that time. However, there  will be cash available  to
borrow to offset a 30% tax liability.


The Committee has approved the vesting of  all stock  options effective December
31, 1993. As a participant in the Corporation's Stock Plan, you  will have until
the lapse dates noted below to exercise these options.
