Dear Mr. Petrelis,

The New York Times newspaper's Ethical Journalism guidelines went into
effect in January 2003 and relate only to members of the News and Editorial
Departments, not members of the Sulzberger family who do not work at The
New York Times or employees in other areas of The New York Times Company.

The contributions you have listed below, with only a few exceptions, were
made before the guidelines went into effect or by people to whom the
guidelines do not apply. In the few instances where this is not the case,
the journalists, have been reminded of the guidelines.


Catherine Mathis
VP, Corporate Communications
The New York Times Company
