Query Sent: Jan. 4, 2022
MS Type: Contemporary Adult 116K words
Polite Rejection received: Jan 10, 2022

I informed the agency I had received a request for a full manuscript from a different agency to allow them the opportunity to review my query more quickly and make an informed decision. They chose to decline; which is fine. Their response (below) was very polite.

Dear Anthony,
That's great news about the manuscript request! At this time, we're going to step aside, but we wish you the best of luck going forward to publication.
Sincerely,
Callie
