    Wow! The boss needs to get rid of all of the slang and idioms.

    Good God. Get a new boss.

    I would completely rewrite it. He ought be offering assistance in the move and getting settled. And the stupid cheeszy "pleased as punch" "my level best" ought to be left for his Alabama office.

    If I worked here, I would seriously start watching for other jobs. No one can be great working for a toad.

    oh yes: audience centered...NOT. Count the number of I vs you.
