the previous injection which had become set and

injected at all after the Bronchial artery had on 
a previous day been distended to its minutest capil=
=laries sets the question at rest as to there being 
no anastomosis between the two; because had 
there been any such anastomosis, the vessels which 
were subsequently injected from the pulmonary 
vessels could not have failed to have become injected 
in the first instance, when vessels infinitely more 
minute were filled so completely as in this specimen -

Having now traced the Ramifications 
of the Bronchial artery through its various 
distributions in the interior of the lungs, and 
and having arrived at the surface of the lungs what 
remains of the trunk of the Bronchial artery, reduced 
to exceedingly small dimensions are here seen to accom=

foramina on the surface of the lung, and are there spread 
out into the final capillaries, which are dispersed 
within the sub-pleural cellular tissue - The 
drawings in series B No5 and No6, illustrate this point,
