Molly Weasley's letter to Petunia and Vernon Dursley
Letter information

Molly Weasley

Date of writing

23 August 1994[1]


Molly asks Dursleys whether they'll allow her to take Harry to final of Quidditch World Cup and to see him safely onto train back to school.

Delivered via

Little Whinging postman

This letter was written by Molly Weasley to Vernon and Petunia Dursley on 23 August, 1994, asking permission to take their nephew, Harry, to the Quidditch World Cup. The letter was sent via Muggle Mail, and Molly, unfamiliar with Muggle customs, covered the entire letter envelope with stamps, save the part in which the address was written.


Dear Mr. and Mrs. Dursley,

We have never been introduced, but I am sure you have heard a great deal from Harry about my son Ron.

As Harry might have told you, the final of the Quidditch World Cup takes place this Monday night, and my husband, Arthur, has just managed to get prime tickets through his connections at the Department of Magical Games and Sports. I do hope you will allow us to take Harry to the match, as this really is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity.

Britain hasn't hosted the cup for thirty years, and tickets are extremely hard to come by. We would of course be glad to have Harry stay for the remainder of the summer holidays, and to see him safely onto the train back to school.

It would be best for Harry to send us your answer as quickly as possible in the normal way, because the Muggle postman has never delivered to our house, and I am not sure he even knows where it is.

Hoping to see Harry soon,

Yours sincerely,

Molly Weasley

P.S. I do hope we've put enough stamps on.
