Dear
Mr.

Re

This
is
to advise
you
that
your

received
by
this
Office
on

1980.
This
Office
has
a
substantial
backlog
of
pending
appeals
received
prior
to
yours
and
a
shortage
of
attorneys. In
an
attempt
to
afford
each
appellant
equal
and
impartia
l
treatment
we
have adopted
a
general
practice
of
assigning
appea
ls
to
Office
attorneys
in
the
approximate
order of
receipt.
Your
appeal
has been
assigned
number
80-0656.
Please
mention
this
number
in
any
future
correspondence
with
this
Office
concerning
this
specific
appeal.
We
will notify
you
of
the
decision
of
the Associate
Attor
ne
y
General
on
your
appeal
as soon
as
we
can.
The
necessity
of
this
delay
is
regretted
and
your
continuing courtesy
is
appreciated. anice
