Dear Dr McIntyre,
I am writing on behalf of the Editor, Philip Campbell, to update you on the status of our handling of your complaint. As Dr Campbell may have told you, we have already been in touch with Professor Mann's group, who have indicated their willingness to supply us with the various materials pertaining to your complaint. Once we have these in hand, we intend to seek external independent advice on the issues that you raise; and on the basis of such advice, we will decide on any actions that need to be taken.
Thank you for your patience.
