Was a very kind reply that showed that he actually read my query and did look at my work. Even though it ended up being a pass, Iā€™m really thankful I had the opportunity to query him!

Dear ___,
Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, it's not quite what I'm looking for at this time, so I will have to pass. I encourage you to continue querying with the hopes of finding the right agent for your project.
Best wishes in your search for representation.

From the agent: If you were caught up in the crossover from my older system via direct email and haven't yet received a reply, please resubmit via Query Manager.

To follow up on what MAMdebut said, and for dfair07 & nesswriting: I emailed Mr. Carr directly ā€“ I submitted to him via email before the switchover, promptly fell very ill, and am just today cleaning up my query list ā€“ and he replied shortly thereafter saying to submit via Query Manager. Hope that helps!
