"Thank you so much for querying me. I'm so sorry to let you know that I won't be requesting additional materials or offering representation.

Please know that I can only responsibly take on a few new clients each year, and my decision to pass does not mean another agent won't be a passionate and energetic advocate for your project. I wish I could go into more detail about why I don't feel I'm the right agent for this project, but I'm afraid my workload does not allow it. I know this can be a crushingly opaque process and industry, and I hope you know that writers like you have all of my admiration and respect.

Please accept my very best wishes for your writing success."

I got a nice rejection today about 2 months after query:


Thank you for sharing your query letter with me. I regret to inform you that I won't be requesting additional materials or offering representation.

Please know that I can only responsibly take on a few new clients each year, and my decision to pass does not mean another agent won't be a passionate and energetic advocate for your project.

Please accept my very best wishes for your writing success.

Respectfully,
Margaret

submitted early version on 2019, got no answer. New title, trying again after extensive rewriting.
