Rejection form letter:

Dear Jerry,

Thank you for your email query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’m not the right agent for it. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. Thanks again for the look, and I wish you the best of luck.

Sincerely,
Katie Grimm

Used my name but the rest seems like a form: "Thank you for your email query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work for possible representation, but I’m afraid I’m not the right agent for it. Of course this is only one response, and tastes vary widely among agents. Thanks again for the look, and I wish you the best of luck."
