Letters to the Editor

Bells are ringing …

Three people who saw the bells I wrote about (Farm Collector, August 2005, page 5) told me they were prayer bells used by monks in Europe. The monks would shake the bells as they said their prayers. The whistle in the bottom may have been added later. Thanks for printing my letter. I had no calls or letters from any Farm Collector subscribers, so I guess we stumped them also!
