Dear Official Correspondence,

Thank you the information that has been provided.

I must note that the document "6.22.06.21 GRG presentation for deep dive.pdf" is unreadable (by two different PDF readers) and appears to be corrupt. Can LGWM please provide, as a matter of urgency, this document in a readable format (preferably the original electronic format)?

Yours sincerely,

Tony Randle
