I just submitted an unsolicited query asking for literary representation today around 3PM Eastern Standard Time from Jacksonville, Florida. I will post an update here to see if I get a form rejection within an hour or within forty-two hours. Hopefully, there would be form rejection.

[3 days, form rejection] Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.
Sincerely,
The Stringer Literary Agency LLC
