Good afternoon Ms. Best,

The Civil Division received your below FOIA request for emails to or from AAG Hunt containing the word "ANONYMOUS" or " HACHETTE." In order to save both time and resources, we were reaching out to see if you would be interested in narrowing the scope of your request to the emails containing either of those words, which relate to or reference the book "A Warning" by Anonymous. This would assist in the search for responsive emails if you narrowed the scope to emails related to the book.

Please let me know if this is something you are amenable to.

Thank you,

Elizabeth A. Sullivan
Senior FOIA Counsel
