smaller veins intersect each other as they cross the 
interlobular spaces, so that it is found impossible 
to separate the lobules and groups of lobules from 
each other without tearing across some of these 
small branches, but no direct trunk of anastomo=
=sis such as is seen in the veins of the extremities 
and in the larger Bronchial veins are ever to be found uniting the trunks of the Pulmonary 
veins - 
These remarks respecting the Bronchial veins, which 
accompany the Bronchial tubes ought not, properly 
speaking, to have been mentioned in this place, 
while describing those structures which belong to 
the subpleural cellular tissue and to the exterior of the 
lungs, they are incidentally mentioned however, in con=
=sequence of the other veins to which they are allied 
having introduced their notice - 
The existence of any such veins has lately been 
denied by some modern writers who have found it 
easier to ignore their existence than to take the 
trouble to search for them: they cannot be overlooked 
if they only be sought for (after the Bronchial artery has 
been properly injected): they are very large in comparison
