Richard,

 

First of all I would like to apologize for not getting back to you.  Unfortunately I received your fist email while I was traveling on business in Washington DC.  I was back in Kodiak for just a day and a half before leaving again for Chicago.  I know it’s not a very good excuse, but with just a short amount of time between trips, I forgot that I had promised to respond.

 

I tried calling you earlier today.  I left a message on your recorder.  Rather than providing a long written response, I think it’s better for us to talk on the phone.  Please call me on my cell phone at (907) 830-0163.

 

Will
