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:

Code: [Select all] [Expand/Collapse] [Download] ({untitled.tex})
  1. {\small
  2. your text
  4. }

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.
