Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

J. K. Rowling

Chapter Fourteen: Cornelius Fudge

Summary Chapter Fourteen: Cornelius Fudge

In Hagrid's house, Harry and Ron learn critical pieces of information that seem directed at them by Hagrid, who of course knows that they are hidden in his house, and by Dumbledore, who Harry always suspected could see through the invisibility cloak. They have witnessed what nobody else in the school has, and what they have seen and heard requires them to remain involved in the solving of the Chamber of Secrets attacks until the very end. Although the boys don't yet know how to use these words of wisdom, they know that they are important.
