This letter was written by Rubeus Hagrid to Harry Potter on 31 July, 1993. The letter came with Hagrid's birthday present to Harry, a copy of The Monster Book of Monsters. This is what Hagrid believed to be a practical gift for Harry, as unbeknownst to him at the time, Hagrid had just been promoted to Professor of Care of Magical Creatures.[1]


Dear Harry,

Happy Birthday!

Think you might find this useful for next year.

Won't say no more here. Tell you when I see you.

Hope the Muggles are treating you right.

All the best,



The letter and the parcel.
