Polite rejection. Looks like a from letter after reviewing some other comments below. I asked a few questions and received prompt reply. Would be a good agent to work with. Seemed sincere in the reason for rejection.

"Thank you for your email. While your project sounds interesting, I don’t think it is right for my list at this time.

I appreciate your querying us and wish you good luck in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your work.

Sincerely,

Jill Marsal
