Dear Mr. Vega

First of all, let me thank you and your office for your prompt replies.  I must also apologize for the vagueness of the reason I stated in my initial request.

Currently, I am conducting research regarding the Congressional Hearings on the Water Summit wherein the Opinions I requested were cited by the MWSS as part of their basis for their conclusions.  As such, it would be great help to me if you were to kindly grant my request.

Thank you.

Yours Respectfully,

Wilhelm Moraga

Excuse me, I would like to follow up with my request as the mandatory period for it has lapsed. I notice that it's status remains as "awaiting clarification" even though I have provided some explanation regarding my research.  Some feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Respectfully yours,

Wilhelm Moraga
