To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

This request is made under the Freedom of Information Act.

I hereby request a copy of an FOIA request (and processing notes) for information and records on Mary Ferrell. I do not have a reference number for this request, which I believe was made in the last two years.

This request was mentioned in the CIA's Jan. 7, 2015, rejection of a separate FOIA request I faxed to the CIA on Nov. 23, 2014, for information and records on Mary Ferrell.

The reference number for FOIA request I submitted, and which was rejected, is F-2015-00493.

I believe the FOIA request I am seeking at this time triggered a Mandatory Declassification Review.

Mary Ferrell was a Dallas woman who amassed a large amount of material about the assassination of President Kennedy and other events. Her full name was Mary Elizabeth McHughes Ferrell. She passed away in 2004. This is a link to her obituary, which was published in The Dallas Morning News: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dallasmorningnews/obituary.aspx?n=mary-elizabeth-mchughes-ferrell&pid=1958846

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

John Kirsch

An acknowledgement letter, stating the request is being processed.

From: John Kirsch

I have read the CIA's letter dated Feb. 18, 2015, acknowledging the FOIA request I submitted, through MuckRock, on Jan. 13, 2015. In your letter, you reference a second letter from the CIA, dated Jan. 7, 2015. That letter, which rejected my request for information/records on Mary Elizabeth McHughes Ferrell, commonly known as Mary Ferrell, made reference to a request for information/records on the same subject (which I took to mean Mary Ferrell) having been submitted in the last two years.
It is THAT request, made, apparently, by another person, that I am seeking, not an FOIA request that I have made to the CIA about Mary Ferrell. It may be that this other FOIA request, not one made by me, triggered a Mandatory Declassification Review, and that accounts for my interest in it. I hope this clears up any confusion about what I'm seeking with this FOIA request. John Kirsch
