Announcement of the change of time and venue of Harry Potter's disciplinary hearing.

Cornelius Fudge: "You're late."
Harry Potter: "Sorry, I — I didn't know the time had been changed."
Cornelius Fudge: "That is not the Wizengamot's fault. An owl was sent to you this morning. Take your seat."
Harry Potter arrives late to his disciplinary hearing in 1995.[src]

The Wizengamot sent a letter to Harry Potter in order to notify him that the time and place of his disciplinary hearing had been changed to three hours earlier and in Courtroom Ten. As this owl was sent the same day as the hearing, Harry Potter missed it and arrived five minutes late when he went to work with Arthur Weasley.[1]
