      J. Warner was in England, of course. Here’s a bit of trivia that’s fun. Paul Revere was the first large founder of bells in the U.S., casting over 400. His early bells didn’t have the best sound, and after relations started to thaw with mother England following the Revolutionary War, Paul send his son to England to study bell shapes. His son bought a J. Warner bell and had it sent home for them to use as a pattern. Following this, the Revere bells were changed in shape and had a better tone.
