MARY EVANS INC.
Thank you very much for thinking of Mary Evans Inc. Unfortunately, after careful consideration we have determined that your material is not quite right for us.
We apologize for the impersonal response. Given the large number of queries and manuscripts we receive every week, we are unable to reply to each submission individually.
Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to consider your work and we wish you the best of luck.

If I had a dollar...
after careful consideration
So careful, in fact, that they addressed their response to "Dear Author". Riiiight.

Dear Jennifer James,
Thanks for sending your query letter for THE DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK, but I don't think I'm the right agent for your work. I wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.
This chick has a quick response time. How novel. =)
