Form letter with poor formatting (I received it with the line breaks as shown below):

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to read your submission.

Unfortunately, after careful review, I have decided to pass on this

project.

This industry is incredibly subjective, and there are many agencies out there with many different
tastes.
It is for this reason that I

strongly encourage you to keep submitting elsewhere in the hopes of finding

an agent who will be an enthusiastic champion for you and your work.

I wish

you all the very best of luck and success with your

writing.
