Dear Hogwarts’ House Elves,

I recently got my acceptance letter and I am looking forward to going to Hogwarts, but I’m worried about leaving Mother. Will you clean my clothes? Will you make my bed? Will you wash my socks?

Dear Nervous Student,

Thank you for your question future Master. I am sure you are looking forward to joining us here at the castle soon and we hope you enjoy your first year here, but before you come we suggest you appreciate your mother more. Hogwarts is a very large castle and though there are many of us you may need to be more patient. We would never say that you are a spoiled brat who needs to grow up and learn some manners….
