inextricably sewn together, as it were, by these minute 
veins and it is impossible to separate the lobules 
without tearing asunder multitudes of these inter=

Except for the connection between the lobules and 
groups of lobules, which these small veins establish, 
and for the loose connection which the cellular 
tissue and the Bronchial vessels belonging to it afford,

leaflets at the base of each lobule, each of these 
portions of the lung would be entitled to be consi=
