Beryl Lipton,

I am testing the email provided to verify the validity of the address. I do
have some questions about the records request that sent to our office on
October 2nd. I can tell you there will be a fee, how much I cannot
determine at this time until I have had a chance to understand your request
better. Most of the information may be able to be emailed but again that
will depend on our conversation. Please contact me at your earliest
convenience at the below numbers. Thank you.

Hello Lieutenant Vincent,

Thank you so much for your message. I would like to confirm that the email address associated with this request is requests@muckrock.com. Please feel free to call me at 617-299-1832 when you have the opportunity, and I'll be more than happy to try to clarify my request.

Best wishes,

From: William Vincent

Marie, please see the attached public records request.

Numbers one and two I was able to print out of our SOP Manual and will send
an invoice for the paperwork on these two line items.

After speaking with Ms. Lipton by phone this morning numbers three and six
do not apply to us and Ms. Lipton has made note of that.

Numbers four and five are where I need your help.

Number four seems to just be our contract with your company, however number
five is asking for financial reports and figures I don't have.

Thanks for all your help. Please let me know if you will send me the
information being requested so that I can send just one invoice for this
request or if you will deal with her directly.
