I'd queried one other person at the agency before. My rejection didn't state feel free to try one of our other agents!

Thank you for writing me about your manuscript. I’m stepping aside, but I do appreciate that you thought of me and wish you the very best luck finding the ideal agent for your work.

All best,
Molly
