in consequence of the missive, The sword of Godric Gryffindor!, penned by Griphook
Dear Mr. Griphook,
Do ask yourself, what claim does an obscure Mr. Potter, Mr. Dumbledore or Mr. Gryffindor have over your generosity? I have asked my husband over and over, what possible claim could the Miss Dashwoods, who were related to him only by half blood (which I consider as no relationship at all), have on his generosity? There is no knowing what such
If Mr. Potter is really breaking into a vault at this fine estate of Gringotts, then it sounds as though he is much more able to give you something of a little more value than an aged sword; only conceive how comfortable he will be! All the china, plate, and linen to be found; the small golden goblets and cups to be had! Consider those as payment, rather; the value of such items is not to be undermined, indeed. (Mrs. Dashwood's house will therefore be almost completely fitted up as soon as she takes it, for instance! That is a material consideration undoubtedly. A valuable legacy indeed! And yet some of the plate would have been a very pleasant addition to our own stock here and the set of breakfast china is twice as handsome as what belongs to this house.) Meanwhile, while you consider a proper payment, do what you must; liberate the sword as you see fit; lay claim to it and betray Mr. Potter as you must, for I must say this: that you owe no particular loyalty to Mr. Potter. You owe no gratitude to Mr.
Mrs. Fanny Dashwood.
P.S. Mr. Potter's credentials do sound most uncertain, besides; I myself have never heard of the House of Gryffindor to which he feels so full an allegiance, and I move in the finest circles of London! It sounds rather as though he means to weasel or slyther in to the finer granges of your little world with draconian cunning. Beware, Mr. Griphook.
