    hi there, what you wrote was correct.

    I'm not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Re: which is correct?

    Are you writing this letter to a friend or for (on behalf of) a friend?

    Can I ask where you are from? is correct. The other is also correct, but less used. I would keep to your first suggestion.
