One of those "Dear Author" forms signed by the agency.

Dear Author,

Thank you very much for giving us a chance to consider your work. Unfortunately, your project is not right for us at this time. Publishing is a matter of taste, however, and another agent may feel differently—we encourage you to keep looking for an enthusiastic editor or agent. We wish you the very best of luck with your work.

I'm going to have to spend a little time thinking about how to implement this, but Lauren seems great, and addressing the points she raises can only improve this manuscript. So I'm going to give this a shot!
