Bronchial vessels, injected red, which ramify 
in the fibro-cartilaginous structure of the Bron=
=chial tube, the mucous membrane having 
been stripped off - 
This fibro-cartilaginous structure, and the 
fibrous tissue, where the cartilages are absent, 
are supplied entirely and exclusively by the 
Bronchial arteries; certain minute vessels, 
connected with the air-cells, or more properly 
with the leaflets, which immediately surround 
the Bronchial tubes, penetrate through the 
fibro-cartilaginous structure to reach the 
plexus lining the mucous membrane and 
certain other vessels also, which collect the blood 
from that plexus, perforate the fibrous structure in the 
other direction to reach the venous ramusculi 
which are dispersed over the external surface 
of the tube: and both of these are in connection 
with the pulmonary vessels; but though these 
pass directly through the fibrous and fibro-
-cartilaginous tissue they are never under
