The Daily Prophet wishes to express its regret at the mis-spelling of the name of Clemontyne Rowbuck-Smith. We would like to set the record straight to Miss Roebick-Smith's family and are happy to do so. We erroneously used the spelling "Smythe" and have been told in no uncertain terms that she was definitely a "Smith". Clementine Smith passed away at the weekend.

The Daily Prophet apologises for offence caused and we trust the spelling of Miss Roebuck-Smitt's name is now quite clear.

Unexpected Bequest to Hogwarts School

By Alfred Burgin

Hogwarts school were celebrating an unexpected bequest this week from Clementine Roebuck-Smith, who died last Saturday after a short illness.

A significant proportion of her renowned collection of ancient and rare books were bequeathed to Hogwarts School Library in her will. These include at least one book written in the hand of one of the founders, Rowena Ravenclaw. Although considered a fairly unimportant notebook of daily accounts, it is nevertheless a book of near ienstiamble value, and many more works are still awaiting identification and classification.

"We are so grateful to Miss Roebuck-Smith for her consideration in her will." Said headmistress Copplepott, for Hogwarts School, "Some of the books are returning to their natural home. And who knows what treasures they hold".

Enquiries by parties interested in perusing these books should be sent to Madam Lotus, librarian of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

We are sad to announce the passing of Clementine Roebuck-Smith, after a short period of illness. Roebuck-Smith was for many years a member of the Wizengamot, and had a succesful career in the research of the low level effects of domestic charm use on garden gnomes.

She will also be remembered for her extensive collection of rare and collectable books, which in some areas has been compared to the library of Hogwarts.

The family have asked that donations be sent to the garden gnome support agency benevolent fund in lieu of flowers.
