Good afternoon,

We have received your request on the above-referenced subject. We have conducted several hours of searching and have located approximately six files (approx. 5,000 pages total) that are potentially responsive to your request. There are several additional files that we still need to analyze to determine responsiveness, and there are still several variations/aka's pertaining to your subject that need to be searched.

Before we continue with the processing of this request, I wanted to touch base with you to determine if there might be something more specific (e.g. date range, location, event, etc.) that you are particularly interested in, as providing such information may speed up processing and possibly avoid unnecessary cost to you.

From: Robert Delaware
