*The motto “Touch Not the Cat Bot a Glove” means “Beware when the wild cat's claws are 'without a glove”. This is the motto of the Mackintosh clan from Inverness in the Scottish Highlands.

The Harveian Society is a medical society founded so that doctors could meet at regular intervals to discuss and exchange medical information by means of lectures, demonstrations and conferences. The Edinburgh Harveian Society was founded in 1782. The London Harveian Society was founded in 1831.
