TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

>3) Something committed to the consideration or judgement of another
Makes it pretty clear that a submission is an act or state, not an object.
My manuscript can't, by these definitions, be a submission.

That leaves "the manuscript I sent you" as my choice. ...RM
