From: JPat Brown

To Whom It May Concern:

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

FBI Files on the late writer Dorothy Parker (née Rothschild), whose death in 1967 is a matter of public knowledge.

A request to that agency indicated that they would be in your possession under the follow titles:

I am a journalist, who has written about government transparency in a variety of publications, such as a the Boston Herald.
In addition, in my capacity as editor of MuckRock, I have both written articles concerning FOIA/Public Records,
and directly overseen/commissioned articles on the topic from other journalists,
which have in turn been written about in national publications such as the Washington Post.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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.
