Memoir 49K
Same form letter as others have had, but at least it was a quick response:
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to consider your work. I've read your material, and I'm sorry to say that I don't think it is right for Brian at this time.
Publishing is a tough business, and the response of any individual agent—or indeed dozens of agents—is not necessarily a comment on the inherent value of the project. Every agent has individual tastes and individual business requirements. I wish you the best of luck in finding the right path to publication.

My favorite line from his rejection letter ...

"Publishing is a tough business, and the response of any individual agent—or indeed dozens of agents—is not necessarily a comment on the inherent value of the project."

Does the fact that this lifted my spirits mean that querying is wearing me down ... ?
