Dear Dick,

I wish to thank you again for the excellent music we had at our 21st Presentation Ball. The fact that we had so many young people still present at the end of the ball is proof of the high quality of the orchestra.

The extra work you did at our rehearsal and the arranging of fifteen debs "favorite" songs is truly appreciated.

Your singing of "Sunrise Sunset" was a very special moment. I received many compliments about you and the father ~ daughter waltz. 

Mel and I enjoyed working with you. You made it fun with your good sense of humor.

Again, many thanks !
