Let it lie. If, just in theory, they did cancel it (hypothetically)
and they needed to rescind that, they would lose face.
On the other hand, I'm sure they are just reviewing contracts they
have and, like the game of telephone, things get misinterpreted
down the line. It's really quite unfortunate.
I'm sure it's all an innocent mistake and everything will be fine.
You are sure too, right?
