—The letter[src]

This letter was written in September of 1995 by Dolores Umbridge to Professor Minerva McGonagall, to inform her of the actions of Harry Potter, who is in her House. Umbridge gave the letter to Harry to deliver.

Behind the scenes

  • At the top of the letter, which is written on pink parchment, an angry-looking kitten can be seen peering out of some leaves.
  • The contents of the letter are not seen in either the book or the film, but are only revealed in Harry Potter Limited Edition. In the book, Umbridge seals the letter shut with a spell. Also in the book, however, Minerva McGonagall reads each of the allegations out loud to Harry and asks him to verify that they are true, then offers him a biscuit. Additionally, in the book, the letter also contained the details of Umbridge's chosen punishment-- detention with her every evening that school week.
