A Furious Witch

Professor McGonagall,

As you are now the Headmistress of Hogwarts, I have a very Important question to ask you. Why haven’t I received my Hogwarts letter yet? I’m 15 and I still haven’t gotten my letter.

A furious witch

Dear Furious,

There is no one listed as “Furious Witch” in the Book of Names in the Headmaster’s office. That being said, there are several reasons one may not receive their letter of admission, the most common of which is that their parents have opted out of a formal education in favor of home schooling, most frequently chosen by wealthier pureblood and supposedly “aristocratic” families. Given the tone of your letter, I believe I am correct in discerning that you have been raised in one of these. I suggest you discuss the matter with your parents. I further suggest that you see to your attitude, young witch, as it does not speak well of you.
