                                =cous membrane and that portion which goes to the 
tubular channels of the pleura, the remainder of the 
anatomical characters of the pulmonary vein are as 
simple as possible - 
The smaller veins dip down in the sulci between 
the leaflets and continue to increase in size as 
they run in the interlobular surfaces, where they 
are still placed in the fissures or crevises, which 
intervene between adjoining lobules 2 and leaflets 1: 
they collect twigs indiscriminately from all the 
leaflets among which they are placed. The blood 
therefore which they collect is not from any particu=
=lar leaflet or lobule, but each leaflet and lobule 
sends its blood to more than one pulmonary vein. 
In this particular a very different arrangement 
prevails than that which governs the distribution 
of the pulmonary artery and of the Bronchial tubes, 
previous to their arriving at that stage of their progress, 
in which the pedicels are given off. The arrange=
=ment of the pulmonary veins is cosmopolitan, 
while that of the Bronchial tubes and prlmonary 
artery is special and exclusive.
