Pro­vide for all

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Letter To The Editor -

With each is­sue of Scots Her­itage I look for­ward to read­ing about an­other clan, and the Clan Oliphant ar­ti­cle was no ex­cep­tion. The rise from the ashes of a new Clan Chief af­ter 260 years seems in­cred­i­ble, and con­grat­u­la­tions must go to Richard Oliphant for his tenac­ity in work­ing through the fam­ily an­ces­try to fig­ure it all out. One thing that I es­pe­cially noted is the Clan Oliphant motto, ‘Tout pour­voir’ or Pro­vide for All, which does seem a much more wor­thy sen­ti­ment than my own Gunn clan motto, ‘Aut pax aut bel­lum’ – Either Peace or War!
