My, this stuffy nose is quite the annoyance. I’ve had it for a good week and it shows no sign of getting the slightest bit better. This brew hasn’t worked, and I’ve done my best with the medicine mother’s sent me, but it’s no good. I suppose it’s just my allergies again…strange though, that they should have this affect in the middle of winter…when everything is pretty much dead. Strange. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Still, I shouldn’t fuss over a little cold when those around me can hardly stand up without puking their insides out. Quite unfortunate, really, to have half the school sick at the same time. |
I see Remus Lupin and the condition he’s in and I’m afraid for my sister. She too has caught the virus, though it isn’t nearly as bad for her as it is for Remus, but I’m trying my hardest to ensure it doesn’t get worse. She may complain that I’ll be shoving a numerous amount of multicolored pills down her throat every couple of hours, but she’ll thank me when she feels better. Or maybe I should write to mother to see if she could take us home for a short while until the virus passes. Some time away from Hogwarts may do us some good.
Lucius wishes you all his best. He won’t be teaching this week because of some task or the other that he’s got to attend to, but for those of you who are in his class, he asked me to post a small assignment. Something about an essay on the importance of Herbology, but I don’t quite remember. Well, he’ll let you know when he gets back.
