Cook the bacon pieces until crisp. Add onion, potatoes, and celery; salt to taste. Add water enough to cover the vegetables, and simmer till potatoes and celery are very tender. Add butter and pepper. Add enough milk to make soup the consistency you like it. Flour or cornstarch, mixed to a smooth paste with a small amount of milk, may be added for thickening. Simmer until thickened, stirring often. An extra bit of butter may be added to each bowl as the soup is served; freshly ground pepper makes a nice garnish, also.
