                                since almost immediately that the Pulmonary 
veins appear on that surface they dip down into 
the sulci, which divide the leaflets and commence 
the formation of the larger pulmonary veins. 
These larger pulmonary veins run along the 
margins of the lobules in the interlobular spaces. 
A drawing in Series C N<sup>o<\sup> 4 fig. c exhibits a 
representation of these veins on the interlobular 
surface - The interlobular veins are joined by 
other similar veins and by some which collect 
the arterialized fluid from the plexus belonging 
to the Bronchial mucous membrane. a drawing 
in Series C N<sup>o<\sup> 5 fig a illustrates the formation of 
these latter

Before passing from the description of the 
external features and characteristics of the 
lungs, it will be well to mention that certain 
peculiarities prevail with respect to the shape of 
the lungs, taken as a whole, and that the same 
characteristics may likewise be traced not only 
in each <s>lobule<\s> lobe into which each lung is divided, 
but in each group of lobules, in each individual 
lobule and in each leaflet or ultimate sub division 
of the same.
