The 1760 Eayre’s ring of 6 at Swithland, Leicestershire, (3rd recast 1793 by Arnold) all bear an inscription regarding the donor.  However, the tenor also bears the final verse of Psalm 150.  The interesting thing about this inscription is that (unlike the other bells), whilst the Psalm verse is a normal inscription the one to the donor is incised into the bell.  I am conjecturing that the donor inscription was forgotten and therefore incised after casting, but would be interested if there are any other theories.  I have hopefully attached a picture showing the tenor.  Many thanks in advance, Richard
