Writing on behalf of a group

Since that's a prepositional clause "of pronoun" and reflexive, you want "On behalf of my wife and myself, I express our extreme displeasure."

You shouldn't just go on talking in the first person, though. I think it only makes sense to state that you are saying something. "On behalf of my wife and myself, I'm going now." — doesn't make sense.

As a matter of style, it might be better to simply use the first person plural. "My wife and I cordially invite you to a ditch digging ceremony." You can speak on your wife's behalf without specifically using the word "behalf."

These salutations should be used with people you are close to, as they might offend others.

Hello guys, Use when writing to a group of people you know very well.

  •  There should be a comma after the salutation and a colon after “To Whom It May Concern”.
  • No full stop is needed after Mr, Ms, and Dr.
  • The form Mrs is outdated.
  • Avoid the exclamation (!) in salutations.

Starting your letter

There two ways in which business letters usually start: they make reference to a previous contact, for example, phone conversation, meeting, previous mail correspondence; or they are the first contact with the recipient.
