Dear JPat Brown:

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
of May 17, 2017 for records in the custody of the National Archives and
Records Administration. Your request was received in this office on May 22,
2017 and assigned FOIA case number 53064.
​​
You requested access to case file number 58-HQ-3075, identified by the FBI
as potentially responsive to your request for records relating to Welburn
Mayock. My initial assessment confirms that Welburn Mayock is in fact the
subject of this file. The file has an estimated 2,500 pages, compiled as
part of an internal security investigation conducted between August 1953
and December 1969.

This file requires screening for categories of information exempted from
disclosure under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, prior to
public release. In particular, there are documents that may be redacted to
protect the identities of confidential sources, including FBI informant
codes and informant file numbers.

Your case has been assigned to our second-tier processing queue. Requests
for FBI case files that exceed 500 pages are assigned to our second-tier
processing queue. In addition, requests for more than 1,000 pages are
processed on an incremental basis. To give you an indication of our
existing backlog, we are currently processing requests in the second-tier
queue which were received in September 2012.

If you would like to narrow your request to potentially reduce the
processing time, here is a breakdown of the main sections of the file by
