"Thank you for submitting your query. Unfortunately, I do not believe I am the best agent to handle this project, so I have to pass on requesting more material. Due to the high volume of queries I receive, I'm not able to respond individually, but thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your work."

Form rejection, saying he doesn't believe he is the best agent to handle this project. Thank you Mr. Yarn for your reply, it is much better than waiting for no response. Thank you again for your consideration.

Query 2/10 - Adult SF
Very kind rejection 2/16. "I think the writing is good and I'm personally interested, but I'm not feeling like I know where to take this story to find success. I'm sorry. Hopefully another agent can figure it out where I cannot."
I appreciated the heck out of his honesty.
