Ms. Lipton,

I'm so sorry I haven't been able to get the final response to you yet. Unfortunately, the approval authority has been on travel with the Admiral and I wasn't able to get the letter signed before he left. I expect him back after the holiday and hope to get the response signed right away. When it is signed, I can send it to you electronically. I truly regret the delay, because I always strive to get these completed as quickly as possible. I'm hoping I will be able to get the response to you by Wednesday. But please feel free to contact me anytime for a status report.

Sincerely,

Ms. Lipton,

Thank you so much for your patience. My boss just returned from TAD today and I thought I'd give him the day to get his bearings before I pressed him again for a few signatures that he owes me. I hope to get your response signed tomorrow.

I had a nice, if not soggy, weekend. Hope yours was nice wherever you were.

Good morning, Ms. Lipton,

This is a quick note to let you know that it will be a bit longer before we can provide a final response on your FOIA request. We did a record search, but my release authority wants to verify those results. Unfortunately, he's on travel again for the next week, so it may be after June 9th, before I am able to provide the formal response letter.

I apologize for the additional delay, but we want to make sure the search was indeed complete and all results have been tabulated correctly.

Sincerely,

Hello Ms. Alvers,

Thanks so much for your notes. I'm happy to hear that the weekend was nice; the days were a bit misty in New England, too, but at least they were a break. I'll look forward to hearing from you again in a few weeks, and I appreciate your diligence in responding to this request. I hope the interim is lovely.

Best wishes,
Beryl

Ms. Lipton,

I'm sorry for my delayed response to you; I was on leave for the long holiday weekend.

I appreciate your continued patience with the processing of your request. However, I regret to say that the processing still hasn't completed yet. The proposed response is still pending approval with the release authority, who is currently out of town on travel. I'm hopeful that I will be able to give you a final status on Tuesday when he returns.

Hello Ms. Alvers,

Thank you so much for these! I'm wondering whether there were any design materials available, because I would be interested in seeing the final products, etc. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Thanks so much for your time. I hope you have a lovely evening.
