[ROOT] making a histogram frame smaller

Dear ROOT,

	This seems like an elementary question to me, but I can't find the 
answer anywhere; my apologies if I missed it.

	I'm plotting histograms, and I want to enlarge the fonts on the axis 
labels and titles.  Easy enough, but then they start to run outside the pad, 
and I can't see them.  It looks like the solution would be to shrink the 
histogram frame -- something I think is the TFrame.  Then the pad would stay 
the same size, and I'd have more room for my lettering.  But I cannot figure 
out who actually owns the frame -- the histogram or the pad -- and then 
despite fooling with SetBorderSize, I can't seem to actually change the size 
of the frame.  Can someone help?  Thanks, best wishes.
