Requery of a Full requested several years ago and rejected with a letter noting the positives and the areas that were not good enough. A rejection like that is very helpful, though I do not know if he accepts requeries of rejected material.

Queried October 2019, immediate full request.
Rejection June 2020. A very kind email that was very complementary. I do wonder if the letter was a copy-paste, nonetheless I wouldn't hesitate to query Richard again.
