Letters NOT to send to an agent

From SLUSHPILE HELL the blog of an American literary agent
I would like to submit both my screenplay, short screenplay, animation/children’s screenplay, teleplay, travel series, novel, and memoir for your consideration.
Okay, you talked me into it. Send them all to me. In a big box.
I understand you’re interested in historical fiction submissions, filled with both action and intrigue.
Both action AND intrigue? No.
My novel is a sumptuous feast of meticulously researched historical fact and superbly crafted fiction.
No one can put this manuscript down and not finish reading it. 
Just did.
