Toughie 1680

Thought I’d had WAITE/WAITE and ELL before but can’t find them on the blog.

Expect a carol singer (5) = AWAIT

a = A, carol singer

Old measure introduced by one making delivery, person to produce changes (4-6) = BELL-RINGER

old measure = ELL, one making delivery = BRINGER

Nice misdirection here:

Old Bill’s arrested that means to kill (5) = NOOSE

old = O, arrested = containment, bill = NOSE

WAIT or WAITE = carol singer
ELL = old measure; elbow to end of middle finger; cloth measure 11/4 yrd
