TO COORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 7 June 1892
TO COKKESrOXDENTS. R. ANDERSON, Welford Lagoons: We cannot say whether Limerick or Londonderry was called the " maiden city" after Sarsfield's treaty. Limerick was the last stronghold of the revolution in Ireland. In 1690 William III. unsuccessfully assaulted the city, but it capi tulated to General Ginckel in 1691. The treaty made then was violated by the dominant Pro testant party towards the close of the seven teenth century, and this has given to the city of Limerick the name of "The City of the Violated Treaty." Londonderry, on the other liand, fought ;igainst King James, and thir teen apprentices of the city closed its gates, and the citizens held it from April to August, 1691, being in a state of siege 105 days.
