                                The drawing in series A. No 3 shews the ramifications 
of the Bronchial tube, when that has been laid 
open, so as to expose its interior - the pulmonary 
artery has been injected yellow and the pulmonary 
vein red, in the specimen, from which this drawing 
was taken; the mucous membrane, which lines 
the Bronchial tubes has consequently a red colour 
imparted to it from the very vascular plexus, which 
ramifies on its surface - This plexus is wholly 
and exclusively in connection with the Pulmonary 
<s>vessels<\s> veins, and receives no anastomosing contri=
=bution from the bronchial arteries - 
The drawing in series A No 4 is a diagram taken 
from the calf's lung (in which the Bronchial artery 
alone was injected, but this is not shewn in the 
drawing). The object of the diagram is to shew 
that each division of the bronchial tube goes 
to its own special group of lobules, not anasto=
=mosing nor forming any junction with the lobules 
that do not belong to its own special group. 
Each group of lobules is distinct and separate as 
regards the distribution of the Bronchial tubes 
and as the peculiarities of the pulmonary artery 
also strictly coincide in those particulars with the
