This letter was written by Albus Dumbledore to Harry Potter on 30 June, 1997. The letter was delivered by Jimmy Peakes, which asked Harry to go to the Headmaster's office as soon as possible.[2] Dumbledore then invited Harry to come along with him to the Crystal Cave to retrieve one of Voldemort's Horcruxes.[2]


Notes and references

  1. The letter was delivered on the same day as the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and Dumbledore's death. According to Rufus Scrimgeour (and Hermione Granger) in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Chapter 7 (The Will of Albus Dumbledore), the Ministry has the right to maintain possession of Dumbledore's bequests for thirty-one days only, in accordance with the Decree for Justifiable Confiscation. Dumbledore's bequests were delivered to Ron, Hermione and Harry on 31 July, 1997: Harry Potter's seventeenth birthday. As it is referred in that chapter that the "thirty-one days are up", Dumbledore died exactly thirty-one days earlier, in the evening of 30 June.
