Dear [Recipients Name],
I would like to express my thanks in regards to the pay rise that I have just been awarded. I recognize that it is not normal to award pay rises at this point of the year, so I feel especially rewarded for my work so far. I now realize why our firm has such a great reputation for looking after its staff.
I feel that I am lucky to work for such a great firm and now feel more confident that my job is meeting your expectations. I will repay this faith and will continue to provide steady work in the future, as I feel proud to work for this company.
Thank you again for recognizing and rewarding my work so far, and the monetary gain is much appreciated.

Further things to consider when writing thank you letters to my boss
Thank You Letters
Thank-you letters are letters written to politely acknowledge a gift, service, compliment or an offer. Simply put, these are letters you write to express your gratitude and appreciation for someone's thoughtful actions. You can send a thank-you letter after personal events, an interview, networking events, after receiving a gift or donation, etc. A thank-you letter is always special in that it lets the recipient know that what he/she did was greatly valued and appreciated. The letter should be sent promptly and when the events are still fresh so that it can be more meaningful.
Thank-you letters should be warm, personal, and sincere. Begin with the two magical words "Thank you," and address the recipient in a way that feels most natural. Be clear about what you are thanking the person for. Let the recipient know why his/her specific gift or actions are cherished and why they are important to you. Inquire after the recipient's well-being and share some information about your life. Let him/her know that you are thinking about him/her and mention the next time you may want to meet. To wrap things up, thank the recipient again and let him/her know that you value his/her friendship.
