In any amicable action of ejectment, Landlord shall first cause to be filed in such action an affidavit made by Landlord or someone acting for Landlord setting forth the facts necessary to authorize the entry of judgment, of which facts such affidavit shall be sufficient evidence, and if a true copy of this lease (and of the truth of the copy such affidavit shall be sufficient evidence) be filed in such action, it shall not be necessary to file the original as a warrant of attorney, any rule of Court, custom or practice to the contrary notwithstanding. 22.

Sm. L. 90, and all supplements and amendments thereto that have been or may hereafter be passed and Tenant hereby expressly waives the requirements of said Act of Assembly and any and all laws regulating the manner and/or form in which such assignments shall be executed and witnessed. 24. Forbearance. The failure of Landlord to insist in any one or ----------- more instances upon the performance of any of the covenants or conditions of this lease or to exercise any right or privilege herein conferred shall not be construed as thereafter waiving or relinquishing any such covenants, conditions, rights or privileges and the same shall continue and remain in full force and effect, and waiver of one default or right shall not constitute waiver of any other default; and the receipt of any rent by Landlord from Tenant or any assignee or subtenant of Tenant, whether the same be rent that originally was reserved or that which may become payable under any covenants herein contained, or of any portion -18- thereof, shall not operate as a waiver of the right of Landlord to enforce the payment of the additional rent or of any of the other obligations of this lease by such remedies as may be appropriate, and shall not waive or avoid the right of Landlord at any time thereafter to elect to terminate this lease, on account of such assignment, subletting, transferring of this lease or any other breach of any covenant herein, or condition of this lease, unless evidenced by Landlord's written waiver. 25.
