This letter was written by Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter on 21 April, 1997. The letter was stained with Hagrid's tears, and was a request for Harry, Ron and Hermione to attend Aragog's funeral, which only Harry, under the influence of Felix Felicis, attended.[2]


Dear Harry, Ron and Hermione,

Aragog died last night. Harry and Ron, you met him and you know how special he was. Hermione, I know you'd have liked him. It would mean a lot to me if you'd nip down for the burial later this evening. I'm planning on doing it round dusk, that was his favourite time of day. I know you're not supposed to be out that late, but you can use the cloak. Wouldn't ask, but I can't face it alone.
