relation - these Bronchial veins cannot be injected 
in a retrograde direction because of their valves, but 
if proper care be observed the injection sent into the 
Bronchial arteries can be made to flow into these 
veins through the Bronchial capillaries. 
Besides the veins already mentioned as occu=
=pying the sub-pleural cellular tissue a very extensive 
plexus of lymphatic tubes is found minutely ramify=

These lymphatic ducts make their way from the 
interior of the lungs by passing through the fissures 
which divide the lobules and the minute leaflets 
of which the lobules are made up. They are spread 
over the surface of the lungs in n intricate 
meshwork and form larger vessels, which run 
in a straight direction across the sub-pleural 
tissue to reach the posterior mediastinum - 
In the sub-pleural tissue also, the termination 
of the nerves derived from the pulmonary plexus are to be 
distinguished. The nerves from this plexus are 
distributed to every part of the lungs, and in 
their ramifications correspond very closely with 
those of the Bronchial artery - It is clear and beyond
