My profuse apologies, Evan. I have a Pending Fees document I use saying I sent you a fee letter on 10/12 and your material has been ready to go (pending fee received) since last week. However, I believe I neglected to actually send you the fee letter!

Since the material was indeed due on 11/2, I'll send it to you momentarily plus I'll also send you the associated fee letter for this installment.

Again, I apologize for my oversight.
