    i had not received?

    Is this sentence correct?

    When I had not received a response from you, I assumed that you were very busy in the office. I knew you would response once you had a chance.

    It's fine, after my correction, but 'When I didn't receive ...' would also be acceptable and, perhaps, more natural.

    response - noun
    respond - verb
