Dear JPMorgan Chase Board of Directors:

xNY.io - Bank.org has yet to hear from you on potentially violating the
Endangered Species Act with financing Vineyard Winds.

With the burden of proof exasperated, director and officers insurance stand
at risk for default.

Can JPMorgan Chase respond back to xNY.io - Bank.org, confirming that your
bank is not in violation of the Endangered Species Act with thr Vineyard
Winds project?

Sending you the very best.

Thank you,


Gunnar Larson
