Orson Welles’ inked signature at bottom of fep, and possibly a second time above -- the lower signature is clearly Welles -- the upper signature has indicial of Welles’s wide variety of signatures, but also some unfamiliar characteristics. One can only speculate on the connection -- but the presence of snow plays small but vital roles in both Citizen Kane and the Magnificent Ambersons and this, one of Whittier’s most famous poems is presented as a series of stories told by a family while sitting out a snowstorm. #### Condition.
