Personal rejection. I had submitted to her before and done R&R before she finally passed on the MS. Nice note even if it was a no. SHe's great.

Dear _________:
Thank you so much for your patience. I had a chance to take a look at your query letter and sample pages. I know it’s not much fun to receive a rejection but despite a strong concept and solid writing, [TITLE] isn’t right for me. Persevere as another agent might be intrigued enough to ask for the manuscript, and I’m sorry I can’t offer a referral.
Stay tough out there. Keep writing!
Sincerely,
Kristin Nelson

Pass 19 July, very polite R letter. Apparently she passed to a colleague so they could look as well, but both declined. Quick and professional!
