Dear [XXX]:

We refer to your letter dated October 10, 1997, with enclosure, on behalf of your constituent [XXX], [city, state]. [XXX] has requested your assistance regarding the matter of standby back pay.

We have carefully considered the claim, and have concluded that payment may not be authorized. We have enclosed a copy of our letter to [XXX], which explains the basis for our action.

While we regret our reply is not favorable to your constituent, we trust this serves the purpose of your inquiry.
