I was so proud to hear of your promotion to the associate chair position of the Committee of Magic is Might, a most auspicious promotion for our family and friends. They could not find a more just but fair person to preside over the hearings that cleanse our world from anything subversive. Have you eyes for the Wizenagamot still?
I have a special favor to ask of you. Here today, this early morning I have discovered that one Miss Hannah Abbott, a lesser of evils amongst the potential subversives has been called before you. I humbly ask, as your doting and loving son, to delay her hearing, or expulsion. She has connections to one Pureblood with whom I have a good working business repoire and I would prefer his mind remain on our dealings, not those of his companion.
My discreet inquiries show that the Abbott family is mostly broken, and it can be noted that they are now ineffectual to inviting any political change. Until my business is entirely complete, please assure that Miss Abbott remains out of any picture.
Love to father, and love from both Fionnula and Laura. Sadly I see little of Theodore these days, a situation I must remedy. He is, after all, like the brother I never had.
Your Loving Son,
|To Madam Alecto Carrow:|
