An overnight fire falls into the nice-to-have category for me...it would make the morning fire easier and quicker, but is not necessary for sleeping comfort. A canvas tent, in addition to blocking the wind, does a pretty good job of capturing the heat of the earth, and my own body heat.
In recent years, I've moved away from gas lanterns for camping, with the exception of winter camping in one of my canvas tents. They put out a substantial amount of heat, and bring cheer, pushing the gloom to the fringes. A gas lantern in a white canvas tent is a thing of joy.
