A copy of documents responsive to the request.

From: Beryl Lipton

Hi there,

I recently called your office, because we were unable to receive the materials provided by your team. The records were then sent in two batches, but we encountered similar issues and the message, "A MIME message exceeded the maximum size limit." I was told when I called that, should the emails fail again, your office would be able to mail the responsive records to us. Could you please do so at this point? Alternatively, we have an upload link at the bottom of this message that may be used to transfer the records. Please let us know if you have any questions for us and when we may expect the responsive materials.

Thanks so much for your time and help.

From: United States Secret Service
