Nice cardstock form rejection. Very form and impersonal, but still nice.

On 3/8, I mailed him my query and sample for Venom. I've heard back with a rejection: Although my project does sound interesting, they're taking on nearly no new clients these days...

8/22, I queried him. Today I've heard back. Same response as before.

Postcard rejection that fit perfectly into # 10 SASE. No new clients. Probably a good idea to update this agent's profile.
