Dear Mr. Delaware:

On January 24, 2014, you submitted a request for "any Memorandum of
Conversation that might have been generated from a meeting between
Secretary of State Rice and Georgian President Saakashvili on 07/10/2008."
You requested this information under both the Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) and the Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR) procedures of E.O.
13526. In accordance with the implementing regulations for Executive Order
13526 found in 32 CFR 2001.33 (f), the requester is required to choose one
declassification review process or the other. If you fail to specify
whether you prefer a declassification review under an MDR or FOIA, the
records will be reviewed under the provisions of FOIA alone. Therefore, if
we have not heard from you in 35 calendar days from the date of this
communication, we will close your MR request and respond to your request
solely as a FOIA.
Best regards,

Sarah A. Haldeman, Archivist
George W. Bush Presidential Library
2943 SMU Boulevard
Dallas, TX 75205
