of the Bronchial 
The Bronchial arteries accompany 
closely the Bronchial tubes in all 
their ramifications, being firmly bound down 
to them. They divide as the tubes themselves 
divide, but become more numerous, and give 
off branches, which ramify in the different 
layers of the sub-pleural cellular tissue - 
The Bronchial arteries also freely supply the 
fibro-cartilaginous structure of the Bronchial 
tubes and the fibrous structure also where 
the cartilages are absent, with a free rami=
=fication of fine vessels, and some of these 
extend in the form of exceedingly minute 
capillaries into the tissue of the mucous mem=
=brane, which lines them. These are exceed=
=ingly minute and they occupy a distinct 
and independent course making the anas=

connection with the pulmonary plexus, 
which is spread over the mucous membrane -

The mucous membrane requires a supply of 
vessels for the repairs of its tissue in common 
with that of the remainder of the lungs - and
