Sorry but your scholarship has not taken into account several *more*
astute and astonishing sources:
all the following sources give the following as the Motto of the Clan Ish:
RUN AWAY!!, Run Away!
"The Clan Campbell Journal", Vol.XXXXIV, #35, p.76, line 12.
Article by Neil Angus MacIsh Campbell.
"The Clan Ish in Scottish & Irish Lit., Vol. IX, page 1-666.
Edinburgh, New York and London, 1802; reprinted 1997.
"Ish and Nish"- A compendium of Children's Research into the Comparative
development of Clan MacIsh and Clans Campbell and Keltoi.
[ Research papers completed as a partial requirement to graduate the 3rd
grade.] Specific paper by Bobby Mac Keltoi and Prissy Nichol Mac Ish.*
* Run Away!! Run Away! were the words reported to be shouted by the
founder of Clan Ish, Ish of Ish Chief of the name and arms of Ish.
Ish of that Ilk at the 1st Battle of Glenn Miller (December 6, 1496).
The right flank of the Ish Army wore trousers into Battle that fateful day
against the Campbells of Argyll. The Argyll himself as well as all the
Argyll Milita thought the Ish Right Wing soooooo funny that they started
laughing! :DDD Real men didn't wear tousers into battle they wore Kilts!
Sooooo embarassed were the Ishs that the Ish of that Ilk
begin yelling: "Run Away!! Run Away!
<funny but my Pine program goes NUTS over the word "Ish"!>
