Good evening, Mr. Morisy.

I tried e-mailing Presidential Transition records to the address above, but the record set is way too large - even when I tried splitting the records into a few separate e-mails.

Will you please provide a mailing address so I can send you a CD containing the responsive records? If you have another way I can get this large record set to you electronically (over 91 K KB), please let me know.

Thanks for your assistance.

Good morning, Mr. Morisy.

Yesterday, I attempted to send your FOIA responsive packet via e-mail, however the responsive record set is so large (over 91 K KB), it bounced back as undeliverable. I have loaded the records onto a CD which I'd like to send via U.S. Postal Service.

Will you please provide a mailing address for USPS delivery?

Thank you.
