Response to 'Tales from the Bell Chamber'

by Meredith A Morris
The silencers fit inside each bell and hold the clapper still. Basically, the silencer is on one side of the clapper and the latch mechanism is on the other side. Meredith

Quilla, are your "silencers" on the clappers? It's hard for me to envision from the pictures. You may remember that Jim Fletcher combined bicycle tires and rope to silence Shreveport's bells. We got pretty good at getting them on and off in a timely manner. Enjoyed the poem! Rosemary Cole
