This article is non-canon.

This article covers a subject that has been deemed non-canon by either the author or the Harry Potter licensees, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Harry Potter universe.

This letter was sent by Minerva McGonagall and delivered by Hedwig to Harry Potter in the Upper Castle on the 31st of October, 1991. Its content was to remind Harry that the second Quidditch match on Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry of the year was about to start and it was the Gryffindor Quidditch team against the Ravenclaw Quidditch team, and that they were all waiting for him at the Quidditch Pitch.[1]


Mr Potter, Hogwarts' second Quidditch match of the year is about to begin! Gryffindor will be competing against the redoubtable talents of the Ravenclaw team. I realise this comes on short notice, but you're the best Seeker we've had for ages. We're all waiting for you at the Quidditch Pitch, so please come at once. Deputy Headmistress McGonagall

Behind the scenes

  • This letter seems to be non-canon since it appears during a time where in the novel Harry would be in the Hospital Wing and unable to play the said match.
