But avoiding these errors and carefully inspect=

it will be found that the terminal Bronchial 
tubes split up into certain minute branches, 
which, as they differ both from the ultimate 
pulmonary tissue, and from the true Bronc=

considered as holding an intermediate con=

entitled to a distinctive appellation - 
It is now proposed to call them, for the sake

Their length does not much exceed their 
diameters, and they are not furnished with 
what may strictly be called a mucous membrane.
