Mr. Musgrove: I apologize for the delay in responding. I was processing your request when an unanticipated family medical emergency arose toward the end of last month which required my immediate attention. That situation appears to be nearing resolution. I anticipate being able to provide you a response by the end of this month (January).
Again, I am sorry for the delay.
