Form rejection from Patricia Nelson saying it wasn't right for Kevan's list. It was a long shot, but at least the rejection was quick!

It was a confusing rejection sent from Patricia saying Kevan doesn't think this is right for her list. I pictured Kevan sick in bed and having Patricia reading her queries and her saying, "no." Haha.
