This letter was written by Gilderoy Lockhart to his then-pupil, Harry Potter, sometime during the 1992-1993 school year, when the latter missed one of his Defence Against the Dark Arts lessons concerning the Verdimillious Duo spell[1] and invited him to a private lesson on the spell in his office.



I'm very displeased that you missed my new Defence Against the Dark Arts class! To be a successful wizard you have to study with the best!

Come along to my office for a private lesson.

Professor Gilderoy Lockhart
