ER 4/30/19. "Thank you for querying The Lark Group about your book project. We have evaluated your query and regrettably, your project is not a right fit for our agency. We must be highly selective about the new projects we pursue. Thank you again for thinking of us. Keep your chin up and keep swinging!"

I don't see anywhere about how many sample pages to submit. Does she just want the query?

ER - 04/08/19
Same form reject as others have got - "Thanks so much for the opportunity to read the first five chapters...... There is much that is good here, and you are clearly a talented writer, but I'm sorry to say I didn't fall in love. So I'm going to thank you for the opportunity and step aside to make room for another agent.
