For tomorrow...

By Chinga
Victoire and Perdue's - The New Century First Reader, published in 1899:

Will and Fred went to the barn. They got a pumpkin. The pumpkin was large.
The pumpkin was yellow. The boys cut the top off. They cut the seeds out.
They cut four holes in the pumpkin. They put a candle in the pumpkin. The light shone out.
The boys said, "See our Jack-o'-Lantern..."

A great collection, Isabel - I wonder how many folks actually eat something made from these pumpkins?!!
I do like the turban gourd in V2 - they are delicious when roasted!
