                                divides the vitreous humour of the eye into 
its cells - 
Each leaflet receives distinct filaments given 
off from the Pulmonary artery, which forms 
a minutely anastomosing plexus around 
its walls, and on the processes, which constitute 
its interior cells. Each part of these 
receives also a very complete supply of still 
more minute vessels, derived from the 
Bronchial artery - 
The shape of these leaflets has already been 
partially described, as presenting three distinct 
surfaces, each defined by a margin more or 
less acute. The basement membrane of these 
leaflets is a continuation or expansion from 
the fibrous structure of the Bronchial tubes 
and forms a tough elastic capsule which 
limits the form of the lobules and leaflets, 
and dips down into the sulci between each of 
them - 
of ultimate Bron=
=chial tubes 
In consequence of each leaflet re=
=ceiving several pedicels, from as many 
distinct ultimate Bronchial tubes, there 
is a very minute anastomosis established
