              | 1.       Reference is made to the letter from Mr.
              | J. A. Hennessey of London, England re UFOs.  From
              | past experience, I know that DPR has handled similar
              | inquiries to the satisfaction of all concerned.
              | Because in this particular instance neither intelligence
              | nor implimentation of UFO policy is involved, we would
              | prefer to get the correspondence out of intelligence
              | channels.  It would be greatly appreciated if DPR
              | would provide the desired reply, and fulfil the
              | Request of CplansI in MIN (2).  For your information
              | neither DAI nor the NNRHQ Intelligence agency is
              | familiar with "Project Blue Book".
