Comments: The score is prefaced by a setting of the scene: "Just after the first severe frost in the Fall...the persimmons are full ripe and the possums are all fat ...possum hunts are of nightly occurrence...sweet potatoes are an invariable ...accompaniment to a possum feast...always an occasion for a general gathering and great rejoicing. The title was suggested by the composer's having been a witness at one of these joyful occasions"
