Thomas Butler Gunn Esq.

The undersigned participators in the Christmas festivity at 745 Broadway wish in this manner to assure you of their great gratification with the printed report of their merry making from your hand in the Sunday Courier for New Years’ day last. Conceived in a most excellent spirit and executed with great delicacy and felicity both of thought and expression it gave unqualified pleasure to the entire circle by each of whom the article will be preserved and cherished not only as a souvenir of a most happy event but as no inconsiderable part of the event

And they further assure you that valued as is your report for its own merits, it is no less esteemed for the hand from which it came.
