                                over the mucous membrane of the Bronchial tubes 
and which is more closely connected with the 
Pulmonary Veins will be the very part, which 
will escape being injected; whereas on the 
contrary if this plexus were, as is commonly 
asserted, supplied by the Bronchial arteries, 
it ought invariably to be injected whenever 
the Bronchial arteries are themselves filled, 
but it is shewn that it is impossible to inject 
this plexus from that source, even in those 
cases, where by accident a part of the pulmo=
=nary capillaries may receive the injection 
sent into the Bronchial arteries - 
In giving directions that the injection pipe 
should be inserted into the arteria innomi=
=nata rather than into the commencement of 
the Aorta several advantages are sought: 
the necessity for opening the pericardium 
and wounding the tissue of the heart is avoided; 
and additional scope is given to the injection 
by allowing a part to flow into the coronary 
arteries and the risk of applying the ligature 
so as to obstruct the passage of the fluid into 
a principal Bronchial artery is escaped.
