"During the week before Christmas, REDACTED traveled to northern LCFLAKE with a portable radio in an effort to check reception. He listened on four separate nights with the following results: at a point two miles south of the KMWAAHOO border, in the neighborhood of the LCFLAKE town of Identity 1/Konnitsa (Greece), the program faded in about halfway through and increased in strength until sign-off." Konitsa is a town two miles south of the Albanian border: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konitsa

5/18/51 memorandum from Terence U. Nasmith to Gerald I. Manfield: "(Dico Dimitrov) persisted in considering himself the forthcoming Minister-President of Dreamland...(Dimitrov's) committee (note: "Kelly" is Dico Dimitrov - ally of Willem Oltmens, de Mohrenschildt's would-be biographer), and his party in general, feel no feeling of loss since his removal from active politics...The committee and refugees in LCFLAKE in general, are in much better spirits than they have ever been before. Kelly's removal is in every way a tonic."(At page 95): 4/20/51 memo states " "(Dimitrov) is so hot and irrepressible that our normal flake disposal system is not safe. Run of mill rejects manage to mail letters so certainly (Dimitrov) would."

9/6/49 memorandum from FGW to REDACTED: "I have just been reading over the FBIB reports...and I am pleased to note that there has been such a considerable volume of broadcast commentary as regards the formation of the Pixie (Albanian) National Committee...the LCFLAKE Prime Minister (welcomes) the formation of the committee and stating that the LCFLAKE government would be ready to cooperate...and further that LCFLAKE claims and differences would not stand in the way...most of the Pixies (Albanians) with whom BGFIEND was tentatively discussed agreed that such a statement would be a sine qua non of any effective operation of this character...it is of the greatest importance for the stated position of the LCFLAKE government to become as widely known as possible, both within and without Pixieland..."
