To all residents of the castle, I offer you my sincere and heartfelt thanks for all you have done to aid myself and those injured. Your help is both appreciated and has not gone unnoticed.

It has become necessary at this time to consider other options as we wait for a cure. In order to stave off the effects of the poison and suspend it's progress we will have to petrify those infected. I understand this process may be unsettling for some of you, however you feel please know that this is the best and only course of action we have left available to us at this time. The process will be painless and easily reversible.
It is the best chance we have to save those who are afflicted.
I can only wait a short time before beginning. So please, anything that must be done in preparation for you and yours, do so now.
[Warded to Theodore Nott and Peter Pettigrew]
I wanted to make you both aware that it has become necessary at this time to petrify those whose injuries were more substantial than your own. It is the only action we have left to keep everyone alive while we wait to find a cure. At this time, unless you wish it, I will leave you both as are, until at such a time it becomes necessary. Which I sincerely hope it does not.
