Wish-bone 1840.  Youth's Companion (Boston), Volume 14, Number 8, July 3, 1840<https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=njp.32101079674758;view=1up;seq=32;size=150>.


"There, you see all these clovers have three leaves on a stem; once in a great place there are four on a stem.  If we can find one, you will take hold of two leaves, and I two, and wish and pull, then the one who gets the stem will have the wish."


"It is something like pulling apart a wish-bone," said Charley.
