Query and proposal sent 3/30/21 for 135k true crime/me too memoir

Many thanks for your submission, which Veronique has read with interest. Unfortunately, however, she does not feel she would be the right agent to take this any further. I am sorry to disappoint but thank you for thinking of her in connection with your work.

Re-submitted query on July 16 because I realized I didn't send to children's submission address, but to her assistant directly.
ER: July 20, 2020

FYI under Children's/YA submissions page: "We aim to respond within six weeks. If you haven’t heard from us in that time, you can contact us to find out the status of your submission."

*I submitted by email, although this site says she accepts snail mail only, because the website says on her page to submit via email.

Their website says childrens/YA subs should be sent to childrenssubmissions@davidhigham.co.uk... Which I only realized after I sent my query to veroniquebaxter@davidhigham.co.uk. Anyone else do that and get a response? I'm worried I really messed up and I'm not sure what to do.

Thank you for your submission, which we have considered with interest. Unfortunately we did not feel enthusiastic enough about it to offer to take it further.

We are sorry to give you a disappointing response, but thank you for thinking of us in connection with your work. We regret the necessity of a form email but we are unable to respond personally because of the large volume of unsolicited material we receive.
