Dear Mum and Dad, and Ginny too,
Before you ask, yes, I was sorted into Gryffindor. :)
Hogwarts is great, but very confusing. We’ve been getting lost a lot. The food is really nice, almost as good as your cooking, Mum. The classes are a bit hard (especially Transfiguration), but I really like learning magic.
Remember how we met Harry Potter on the way to the platform? Well, on the train there were no seats left so I sat in a compartment with him. He’s got the scar and everything, but he can’t remember You-Know-Who or even his parents at all, which is a bit sad. He’s really nice, though, he was telling me about growing up with his Muggle relatives, and they seem horrible. He says that not all Muggles are like that, just those ones. They made him sleep in a cupboard and he didn’t even know he was famous before he met Hagrid. Imagine that! Anyway, he knows almost nothing about the wizarding world so I’ve been telling him. Yesterday he took me to meet Hagrid and we had tea. Hadgrid seems pretty cool, even if he looks terrifying.
There are five other boys in our dorm and one of them is Neville Longbottom. The other three are Harry and some I’ve never met before. Everyone in Gryffindor is really nice, but they think I’ll be trouble because of Fred and George. I haven’t really met anyone from other houses, except Draco Malfoy, a Slytherin. I reckon everything you say about that family is right, Dad, because Malfoy’s a right little berk. Still, we only have a few classes with the Slytherins, and everyone else seems decent, so it’s not too bad.
Can you please send me the bag of treats for Scabbers? I accidentally left them at home. Thanks.
Miss you just a little bit,
