Automatic reply that he is out of the office until the 27th and will respond when he's back. At least I know that it went through!

(At least the response came quickly.)

Thank you for letting me review your query. Unfortunately, I don't believe that we are the appropriate agents to represent this material. In this very competitive market, we are simply not enthusiastic enough about our ability to sell this work to offer you representation.

We wish you the best of luck placing this successfully. Thank you, once again, for letting us consider it.

Best regards,

John Rudolph

Rejection was so impersonal that he didn't even write anything aside from "Dear First Name Last Name". Not even a form reject. Haha. Rejections from agents are just getting funnier and funnier. UPDATE: Got a repeat rejection with a form letter today, a week after the first. Had he read it he would have realized that he already rejected me. C'est la vie.
