Hi Keith and Phil (cc Dave),

please see Dave Palmer's email below. I'd already sent him (last
year) correspondence from a number of our IPCC colleagues indicating
their view about the confidentiality of their emails, and today I
forwarded to him equivalent emails from Jouzel, Solomina and
Ammann. However, I can't find anything from John Mitchell indicating
his position re. any correspondence with him. Do either of you have
anything that indicates his wish to keep such material
confidential? I recall that he was very clear about this, but
perhaps only via a phone call?

Not sure how much it matters... I don't seem to have any
correspondence from him anyway!
