ER: Email Rejection - form 10/4/19 (after 9pm on a Friday! Thought I'd have to wait the whole weekend, but I appreciate the quick turn around even if it was a rejection for me.)

Thank you for considering me as a possible fit to represent your book.
I have reviewed your query and, at this time, I do not believe that I
am the right agent to represent your work. Please know that we are
extremely selective, even with the materials we review. I do
appreciate you thinking of us as an agency, however, and I encourage
you to continue your search for an agent who is just the right fit for
you. I wish you every success in your publishing endeavors.

All my best,
Bernadette Baker-Baughman

Fastest rejection yet! Submitted 9/12/19 at 9:25 a.m.; rejected 9/12/19 at 2:51 p.m. Doubt she read it at all. I did see afterwards, however, that when I pasted in her hyphenated last name from their website, something in their software warred with my email software and only her husband's last name copied. So she could be annoyed at that.

CNR 7/15/19. Guess it's not a good fit. Sure wished I'd gotten a response.
