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.
Hi, Use when writing to one or more 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  • The form Mrs is outdated.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.

Lawyers, for instance, do it regularly. Similarly, people who are asked to write character references for the court start their letters with “I am writing on behalf of Jane Doe.” Other situations include writing for people who don’t have the skills to do it themselves or who are second language learners and can’t write in English. Physical injury may be another reason for someone asking you to write a letter on his behalf. Regardless of why you are writing the letter for some else, the format is consistent.

Meet with the person you are going to write the letter on behalf of. Make a list of points to cover, the person to address the letter to and any other details that need to be included.
