|As a "language trainer", I feel compelled to point something out to the non-native English speakers here. We teach that when the 1st person pronoun is the subject of a sentence, it takes the form "I". Thus, John's sentence would normally be taught to be written as "A friend and I will be...".
"Myself" is a reflexive 1st person pronoun and would not normally be used as a direct subject as above, but then in everyday English we often speak and write differently from how we were taught in school. And I believe this particular use of "myself" as a subject is a more British English phenomenon than, say, American.
Oben wurde "myself" korrekt groß geschrieben, aber nicht weil es sich um ein Personalpronomen handelt, sondern weil im Englischen der erste Satz eines Briefes *immer* groß geschrieben werden muss.
