Harry, Ron, and Hermione writing this essay

"Professor Binns had asked for a three-foot-long composition on "The Medieval Assembly of European Wizards"."

Professor Cuthbert Binns assigned his second-year students in 1992 a three-foot-long composition on The Medieval Assembly of European Wizards. Ron Weasley was particularly upset about this essay, as he was eight inches short of three feet. Hermione Granger wrote a four foot seven inches composition in her tiny writing.[1]
