Partial (because she was very kind and I forgot to send the first 10 pages as she typically requests): 11/20/18
ER: 12/07/18

Same form letter as others - but she seems kind and considerate.

"Many thanks for sending me your submission, which I read with interest. I'm afraid, however, that I have decided not to offer representation. Our business is subjective by nature and another agent may well feel differently — I wish you the best of luck.
Best wishes,
