Dear David,

Thank you for your email.  While your project sounds interesting, I don’t think it is right for my list at this time.

I appreciate your querying us, and wish you good luck in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your work.

Sincerely,
Kxxxx Lxxx

OMG – it actually says Dear David – THAT is plus. But then there’s the dreaded “I don’t think it is right for my list at this time.” phrase – darn it.
