¡°He's done more'n enough fer me already,¡± groaned Hagrid. ¡°Got enough on his plate what with keepin¡¯ them Dementors outta the castle, an¡¯ Sirius Black lurkin¡¯ around.¡±
Harry frowned; he felt as though he were screwing up his whole brain in concentration.
¡°Thank you, Minister.¡±
I'm on holiday in France at the moment and I didn't know how I was going to send this to you ¡ª what if they'd opened it at customs? ¡ª but then Hedwig turned up! I think she wanted to make sure you got something for your birthday for a change. I bought your present by owl-order; there was an advertisement in the Daily Prophet (I've been getting it delivered; it's so good to keep up with what's going on in the wizarding world), Did you see that picture of Ron and his family a week ago? I bet he's learning loads. I'm really jealous ¡ª the ancient Egyptian wizards were fascinating.
¡°Arithmancy looks terrible,¡± said Harry, picking up a very complicated-looking number chart.
