I waited a week without receiving a response to the email I sent Frank Ashton and then sent him another:
Dear Mr. Ashton,
To the best of my knowledge I didn’t receive a response — from you or Ms. Schenkel — to this email I sent you last week.
Can you let me know if you have made any progress or if there is any more information I can get you?
Thank you sincerely,
David Vincent Gagne
