It may occasionally happen, when an injection 
is made through the Bronchial Arteries that, 
in consequence of some violence being exercised, 
the capillaries in connection with the arteries 
are made to burst into one or more of the vessels 
belonging to the pulmonary system, and then

lobules, and even of a group of lobules may 
become injected <s>through<\s> from the Bronchial 
arteries but whenever that happens, it is always 
the consequence of a clumsy amount of force 
having been employed - When this acci=
