Heiress missing their Hogwarts letter

Dear Professor McGonagall,

I’ve been waiting four years for my letter to arrive. Now I’m 14 years old. I want to see Hogwarts as soon as possible. I know I am not totally a witch but I feel the magic everytime I read the books and watch the movie. I saw how Harry, Ron and Hermione lived at Hogwarts and it was amazing. I hope I’ll experience it, too.

I await my letter and would willingly go to Hogwarts anytime.

Truly Yous,
Heiress of Gryffindor

Dear Heiress of Gryffindor,

First, my dear, the Ministry will, no doubt, wish to register your claim to the title with which you signed your Owl. Should that claim be verified, I look forward to welcoming you to Hogwarts and the House of Gryffindor.

Absent that happy event, I have searched the Book of Young Witches and Wizards and have indeed found your name, penned in red, indicating your absence from the first year group of 2012. Sometimes owls go astray, particularly if they need to travel outside of Great Britain. You will be welcome to attend the term beginning this coming September. It is my hope that you have studied independently, up to now, so that you may be placed if not with your age mates, no more than a year or so behind them. If you have not had the opportunity to prepare to date, I will be happy to provide you with a reading list. You should expect to sit for placement exams in all subjects, so that we may determine your appropriate course schedule.

You mention you are “not totally a witch”. I will remind you that blood status is irrelevant in admission decisions. Please anticipate the Owl with your official welcome letter this summer.

Best Wishes,
Minerva McGonagall
Deputy Headmistress
