I am attempting to look good when writing to my lawyer and cannot bring myself to like the use of…what is it…the correct word……..As Spike Jones put it, “It’s driving me sane”!

Is the correct word “me” or “myself”?

1. It appears as if the matter between Mr. Jones and me must be reopened.
2. It appears as if the matter between Mr. Jones and myself must be reopened.

The correct version is sentence 1.

But you could tweak it a bit and say "I believe the matter between Mr Jones and myself must be reopened". Now the subject of the main verb is "I", so "myself" is justified.

And if you want to talk lawyer-talk, you could even throw in a "hereinbelow discussed" for good measure. Emotion: smile

The reflexive pronoun is used only when it is mentioned in front. Otherwise as what rommie put it, not justifiedEmotion: smile

The 2nd sentence the ' myself ' doesn't justify the pronoun ' It '
