Harry Potter's letter to Sirius Black
Letter information

Harry Potter


Sirius Black

Date of writing

22 January 1995[1]


Harry tells Sirius about strange things which were appearing Mr. Crouch Jr. on the Marauder's Map and encounter with Snape and Filch on the staircase.

Delivered via

Unidentified Brown Owl

This letter was written by Harry Potter to his godfather, Sirius Black, on 22 January 1995. The letter detailed the events of the previous night. Therefore it told Sirius of how Barty Crouch appeared on the Marauder's Map in Severus Snape's storeroom, and Harry's encounter with Moody, Snape and Filch on the staircase. However, in the excitement of the encounter, Harry had forgotten to write about what he discovered about the Second Task, so when Sirius sent his response, he was unable to offer any help.


Sirius, in response to this letter, sent a letter of his own, simply saying "Send date of next Hogsmeade weekend by return owl."[2]
