mediastinum and terminate in some of the 
oesophageal veins, in the intercostal veins, in 
the azygos veins and in short in any of the sys=

These are not the only veins, which return the 
blood, brought by the <s>Pulmonary<\s> Bronchial arteries, 
some large veins belonging to the Bronchial 
system are always to be found accompanying 
the larger Bronchi. They may be distinguished 
from the Bronchial artery by being less firmly bound 
down to the Bronchial tubes, and by the other characters 
which distinguish veins from arteries<s>.<\s>, <s>They are

which intervenes between the large pulmonary veins
