Dear Beryl,

A strange non-FOIA statement came through this morning at 4 AM on our FOIA system. Apparently you are checking into a FOIA request you submitted on Jan 20. I do not have a record of such a request. Also you did not attach anything to your request of this morning.

You may call me and I can walk you through filing a FOIA request on-line or you can respond to this email. We have no idea of what you want.
