into the artery; if, on the contrary, it be required 
to demonstrate the tufts of capillaries from which 
the Pulmonary veins take their origin, then it will 
be necessary to use the yellow injection for these 
and the red for the arteries, and to apply the pre=
=ponderating force of pressure on the pump which 
propels the yellow. The reason of this is that the 
yellow injection readily penetrates capillaries, 
which the red injection can only with difficulty 
be made to enter and after the injection has been 
made the yellow vessels shew themselves more vividly 
in contrast with the red. From this it will be 
seen, that it depends upon the circumstance as 
to which of the two has been subjected to the prepon=

capillaries rather partake of the colour of that which 
is propelled into the arteries or of that sent into the 
veins - Having made these preliminary arrange=
