Dear Ms. England,

Thank you for your response. I am seeking any and all communication with these organizations during the specified time frame.

I understand from your letter that the Office of the Comptroller of Currency doesn't maintain files on these organizations, and you say that means you are unable to retrieve files by name.

However, my request is not for files but rather for communication, such as emails. Is your office able to search for emails sent and received (included copied on) during the specified time frame? I included the domain names of the organizations in an effort to help your office search for emails.

In addition to emails, my request is seeking any other types of communication, such as letters and faxes, as well as records showing in-person meetings, such as calendar items. Could you please describe how your office stores these records?

I am more than happy to work with you to ensure this request is efficient for everyone. Please don't hesitate to call me at 202-615-3551.

Thank you,
Brooke Williams
