Wasn't doubting the source or the weight - just suggesting that 27-2-13
may not have been a very accurate weighing by modern standards / comparable
with the present weight of the bell. It would be interesting to know what
it weighed when M&S received it for tuning in 1960.

Good to have full details of the contract etc, though - thanks, Anne

[A Willis] There's also a contract with William Bilbie in 1781, the real
thing, not just a copy, signed Willm Bilbie. I have a photo, but it's not
very good, and I don't think it would scan well.
