My Dear Sir
It is with great pleasure that we announce that our society

Our entire society has contracted a debt vis-à-vis to you for
the steadfast and perseverant way that you handled the negotiation and
the unimaginable results that you obtained. For us, it is with great
pleasure that we bestow upon you a token of our gratitude and
satisfaction for all the efforts that you have made for us, and
encouragement for those that you have yet to do.
Accept, dear sir, the new assurance of our sincere affection.
