I eagerly await news of your progress. I had expected you would have some new information to share by now. Has there been a delay I should be made aware of — or perhaps a change of heart?
Regretfully, my project is on a tight timeline. I’ll await your response by the first of the month, or I’ll have no choice but to assume that you’re unable — or unwilling — to provide me what I need. This would be very disappointing indeed.
