Board of Governors
Mr. S. Snape
June 30, 1997
Dear Mr. Snape:
We have received intelligence that you murdered Albus Dumbledore several minutes after midnight this morning. While not technically a violation of any of the clauses of your contract, the severity of this breach of professional decorum has resulted in the termination of your employment at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, effective immediately. In accordance with the terms of your contract, please accept six months pay in lieu of notice. Your account at Gringotts has been credited for that amount.
We regret that the Board of Governors declines to provide the normal letter of reference for your personnel file.
Wishing you all success in your future endeavors,
