For the limitations try to think about what is "wrong" about the source. For example, is the author biased, was the source possibly censored, did it not cover a VERY important area, and/or did it, or is the source too old(this can be a good and bad thing, so be careful)

Try to end the essay with a paragraph that ties everything together, and try to bring some new insights to your essay.

I can't give you specific examples, since I don't have the source that you have.

But do not introduce new insights so much that you fill your conclusion with them. Insights should be brief but, while keeping a "freshness" to the essay but not repeating what the introduction says, not be so fresh that is it a possible spin off. My first essay for History was docked at least 20 points for the amount of "freshness" I incorporated into my conclusion.
