Font size? Textwidth? You realy should explain what you want.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

If you mean the font size, here is an example:

`{\smallyour text }`

The braces `{...}` limit the effect of the font size command. Note the empty line within the braces: end the paragraph before the closing brace, not after it. So TeX knows at the end of the paragraph that a different font size was used, for the line spacing.
