Re: What will we learn about Petunia in Deathly Hallows? v.2

Okay, found it
Harry could see Uncle Vernon's shiny black shoes pacing up and down the kitchen.
"No," he said finally, "No, we'll ignore it. If they dont' get an answer...Yes, that's best...we won't do anything..."
"But---"
"I'm not having one in the house Petunia! DIdn't we swear when we took him in we'd stamp out the dangerous nonsense?!

page 36, US paperback edition
Put in context, I think that Petunia is saying "but" to the idea of ignoring the letter, not that she had something else going on.
