I was happy to receive something, and had summed this one up to a CNR. It was a very formal rejection. Nothing pertaining my writing was in it. No tips, thoughts, or critiques. Neither was the title of my book was in it, but it was something to allow me to move forward and not wait out the time frame each agency gives you when you're submitting. ;-)
