Hermione Granger: "Hagrid, what is it"
Harry Potter: "What's this, Hagrid?"
— Harry and Hermione on the letter they noticed.[src]

This letter was written by Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry School Governors to Rubeus Hagrid on 19 December, 1993.


Dear Mr Hagrid,

Further to our inquiry into the attack by a hippogriff on a student in your class, we have accepted the assurances of Professor Dumbledore that you bear no responsibility for the regrettable incident.

However, we must register our concern about the hippogriff in question. We have decided to uphold the official complaint of Mr Lucius Malfoy, and this matter will therefore be taken to the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures. The hearing will take place on April 20th, and we ask you to present yourself and your hippogriff at the Committee's offices in London on that date. In the meantime, the hippogriff should be kept tethered and isolated.

Yours in fellowship…[2]
