Signed presentation from Welty on the front endpaper: "Merry Christmas & Happy New Year. With best wishes & affection to Edward and Meta from Eudora. I often think of you, please let us write-." With the ink signature of "Meta Malins" on the front cover- believed to be the wife of Yeats scholar Edward Malins, but I have not been able to confirm the association.
