the only result that can be at all worth 
aiming at, must be to be enabled thereby to 
discriminate one set of blood vessels from another 
and to make out the distributions and peculi=

to make ornamental preparations, without doubt 
that end may be attained with very considerable 
success and an exceedingly small amount of trouble, 
by using injection of only one colour, and by 
adopting the convenient theory that they all, 
arteries and veins, anastomose together, supply 
the same tissues and are in every respect alike.

end only sought after, an injection consisting of <s>size<\s> 
size and vermilion will answer all the purposes 
very admirably; beautifully injected specimens

no physiological deduction can be drawn from them. 
The vermilion will withstand a great deal of wash=
