Subject:Identify a scrol

I would greatly appreciate help in translating the scroll's narration and the author's name based on the seal.
Thanks in advance.

長春居士 - Changchun-jushi - Changchun the lay Buddhist
It was the Buddhist name of his grandfather Emperor
Yongzheng 雍正 1723-1735

The upper parts of the inscriptions are missing from the pictures.

Too big names, serious investigation would be needed
to determine if it is genuine.

Thank you very much Nagy for the translation and erudite knowledge of the Chinese imperial history. I remain indebted to you. This scroll was purchased from one of the biggest auction houses in US and I am certain that the scroll is authentic. In the near future, I will place some more photos of scrolls purchasewd from the same source.

Is it possible a big auction house would sell an item without having their experts checking it's authenticity? Certainly an interesting case, will keep an eye for an update.
