Dear Hogwarts MAG

Dear Albus Dumbledore,

I am writing to inquire about the absence of my acceptance letter to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I know not every owl can be 100 percent dependable, but what I don’t understand is how many owls it could possibly take until my letter arrives. I’m not asking to compete in the Triwizard Tournament or anything too extravagant, but I would like to know when I can catch the next train leaving King’s Cross station. I realize that seats on the train are limited, and so I would like to point out that I’m not particular and that I wouldn’t mind arriving at school by flying car.

I do also think that the lack of letters in my mail could be because both of my parents are muggles. However, don’t let that fool you. I know for a fact that I contain potential to be an excellent witch. For example, one time in the fifth grade I sneezed and my dog levitated! Now, it is up to interpretation whether the dog simply jumped out of fear, but my analysis is that the dog did in fact levitate. I believe that this was just the start of my magical talent, and through learning at Hogwarts I hope to expand my skills.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you and finally receiving my acceptance letter with your response.

P.S. No rush on your response, but I was hoping to arrive in time for Quidditch tryouts.

Definitely. I wonder who has been opening my letters, then. Obviously, they knew Harry wasn't replying to Hogwarts and sent Hagrid off after him, so who replied to my letters? This must be some sort of muggle government conspiracy to weaken the magical community by cutting off the muggleborns, or something.

I've been awaiting my letter ever since I was younger.... You know, even the magical community makes mistakes.
