|The sword of Godric Gryffindor!

Dear Lady Catherine,
As you are an esteemed witch of consequence, I seek advice in dealing with an enigmatic group of witches and wizards. Mr Ronald Weasley and Miss Hermione Granger are names gathering in notoriety, but I am certain you shall have heard the name of Mr Harry Potter, late of Hogwarts Castle; even among us goblins, he is famous, you know.
Mr Potter holds the alleged sword of Godric Gryffindor in his possession; in fact, legend long holds that the sword belonged to one of our tribe, to the goblins; that it was stolen from us years before by Gryffindor himself, and passed among human hands. As it is, the sword is goblin made; the rightful owner of any object is not its purchaser, but its maker, so Gryffindor's so-called ownership is, in fact, nothing more than a wicked thievery that Mr Potter is now embroiled in.
But to the point: Mr Potter has struck a deal with me; I am to help him rob a bank vault at Gringotts in London, in return for the sword of Gryffindor being passed back to the goblins; namely, to me. Potter assures me that he does not attempt to break into Madame Lestrange's vault for his own gain, though I hardly care for that; he has already proved himself a thief in retaining the sword of Gryffindor without adequate claim (and I do not count the will of Albus Dumbledore). But needs must, if I am to reclaim the sword; I am convinced this is the means to do it. The crucial question is whether or not to believe that Mr Potter will ever give me the sword of his own accord, as a wizard so openly connected to Albus Dumbledore, the last owner of the sword and master of Hogwarts, and to the House of Gryffindor; one already notorious in our particular society, already openly planning a Gringotts robbery (yet prone to odd bursts of kindness towards some of his ill-bred friends and several house elves, admittedly). But can such a charlatan and enigma be true to his word; if not, how to ensure he acts upon his promise?
Thank you most kindly in advance for your help. I am comforted at least at the thought that, all else failing, dragons lurk in the caverns of Gringotts to greet him cordially.
Yours most sincerely,
Griphook the Goblin.
