Michael Kelly in Limerick

from Reminiscences of Michael Kelly, page 247:

Mr. Logier, the inventor of a method of teaching music, to which he has given his 
name, was living in the barracks at Limerick at that time. He belonged to the
Marquis of Ormonde's regiment of militia, which was quartered there. The finest trumpet player I ever heard in any country played in our orchestra; his execution
on the instrument almost baffled belief; his name was Willman, and he is the
brother of Mr. Willman, the principal clarionet, and an equally talented perfomer
on that instrument, at the King's Theatre.
