September 6th

Father,

Albus Potter got put into Slytherin! I couldn't believe it, the Sorting Hat actually betrayed the mighty Potters. His face got terribly red, it was so funny, and that man Hagstod or whatever his name is started yelling at the Headmaster to make the Sorting Hat say different, right in front of everybody.

But now, of course, this means I must share a dorm with him, and being associated in any way with the Potters' kid isn't going to help my reputation at all. He's an awful baby, really. Cried all night the first night. He thought I was asleep but I wasn't and I could hear him. It's rather difficult to believe he's the son of the famousHarry Potter.

Your son,

Scorpius Malfoy
