Dear Snuffles,

Hope you're okay, the first week back here's been terrible, I'm really glad it's the weekend. We've got a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Professor Umbridge. She's nearly as nice as your mum.

I'm writing because that thing I wrote to you about last summer happened again last night when I was doing a detention with Umbridge.

We're all missing our biggest friend, we hope he'll be back soon.

Please write back quickly.

Best,

Harry

Behind the scenes

  • In the film adaptation, the contents vary slightly:

Dear Padfoot,
I hope you're all right.
It's starting to get colder here. Winter is definitely on the way.
In spite of being back at Hogwarts, I feel more alone than ever.
I know you, of all people, will understand.
