For the next three weeks, Harry was receiving packages of mail from Gringotts. They included the cost of a year's tuition at Hogwarts in galleon by galleon detail. Not every student was paying the same amount; the pure-bloods paid less while the Muggelborn were paying the highest. Also, there was a number of items being paid for that Harry never received. After asking a few discrete questions among his classmates, a lot of other people didn't receive some things either.
In the middle of a crowded lunch, Harry stood up and spoke out loud. "Hannah, may I borrow your Student Handbook you received at the beginning of this school year, please? I didn't receive mine."
"I don't know what you're talking about, Harry." she replied. "I didn't receive any handbook."
"Kevin, can I look at yours?"
"No." was his reply. "I don't have one."
"Mandy, did you receive your Student Handbook? Your parents paid seven galleons for it."
"I have no idea what you mean, Potter."
"Ok. Did any half-blood or Muggleborn student receive their annual Student Handbook at the beginning of this year? Please raise your hand. You all were charged for one as part of your tuition." Harry said louder.
When no one raised their hand, Harry gave Professor McGonagall a stern look. "As Assistant to the Headmaster for Students Affairs, do you have all our handbooks that we were obviously not given? Or is the staff of Hogwarts just pocketing the seven galleons every half-blood and Muggleborn student paid?" That got everybody's attention!
