Can You help me to identify the seals and the word written on this chinese fan? I think a qing fan.
Thank You very much.

The translation of the text caused me some
headache.In my interpretation it reads,
(In remembrance of) the white coated minister who
lived in the high Qing Qiu Mountains, and sang
(White coated means, retired,commoner,without rank)
In this text the key point is the high Qing Qiu
Mountains (高青邱、which is also the pseudonym of Gao Qi (高啓)poet,editor and finance minister from the early Ming dynasty, who for a while lived in the Qing Qiu Mountains.(Suzhou,
Jiangsu Prov.) Find ref. on Google

plums and took record of straw bags.
In hope to give it as present (to)
His Excellency Wan Sun
仲家 (In)Zhong House
指疵 (While)Pointing to mistakes
喩梅曽 Yu Meiceng (Signature of Painter)
Under this name i could not find any painter neither on web nor in name dictionaries.

The right sides of the seal impressions are cut down and too small so the decipherment is rather difficult.
As of the big seal on the lower part (Collector seal or a seal related to a painter school etc.) I could not read the two last characters.
夢荂艸堂   Dream Flower Grass House
無〼〼    No 〼〼

There is not date given at all. It could be
Qing without stint.

I hope it will be some help to you.
With regards,

Nice work. How about 吟梅曾 as a pen name for the artist? There seem to be a few people using 吟梅, but my books are packed away at the moment.

Second artist's seal seems to read 金羊; the first possibly 画昭(韶?)X印. I can see 吾 or 正 above something else in the third character but that's about my limit.
