You've got TWO ways that I know of:
1) In your .Xdefaults or .Xresource file add 2 lines like the
Adjust the font size to match your prefence. This will affect all
2) To adjust the size of just one Xterm use a startup parameter like
xterm -fn 10x20
Adjust the font to match what you want.
BTW The second way was straight from the 'man xterm' page. I forget
where I found the first way.
