    Dear Mr. Potter, we are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Soon, you and your schoolmates will join us here, and your education in the magical arts will begin.

    What happened down in the dungeon between you and Professor Quirrell is a complete secret. So, naturally, the whole school knows.

    So it's true then, what they were saying on the train. Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts.

    Well, thank you for that assessment, Mr Weasley. Perhaps it would be more useful if I were to transfigure Mr Potter and yourself into a pocket watch. That way, one of you might be on time.

  • Mr. Ollivander
    It's curious that you should be destined for this wand when its brother gave you that scar.
