Hannah and her son

Dear Professor Longbottom,

I hope you had a Merry Christmas! I was wondering whether the girl Hannah you talked about in your other letter was your daughter, if so, if you have any other children. Wish them a Happy New Year from me please!


Dear Sofia,

I hope you had a very happy Christmas and a good new year! It is good to know that my letters do get read by many of you. I did indeed mention Hannah in a few past letters; that’s Hannah (Abbott) Longbottom, and she is my dear wife.

Since she took over management of the Leaky Cauldron, Hannah has gotten close with many students and families, who have also seen our son (just the one) grow up before their eyes. I sometimes forget that not everybody knows my family as well as that!

Thank you for enquiring, and please send any more enquiries you may have. Now, if you’ll excuse me I have to extricate aforementioned son from getting into the Puffapods again. They do take such a lot to clean up after they’ve been agitated!
