                                in no case has the pleura received any 
capillary injection.
But regarding this statement in connection 
with the previous one, it should, I conceive, be 
shewn that when both the pulmonary and bronchial 
vessels are injected in the same specimen, that 
a system of vessels in the pleura are filled in 
connection with the pulmonary vessels which 
are placed superficially to those that are filled 
directly from the bronchial arteries.
The author states that “The costal pleura 
derives its supply of blood from the pulmonary 
vessels” P.4.
He says “About eight or ten arteries of 
considerable size derived from the pulmonary artery 
and about twelve or sixteen corresponding veins 
of some magnitude cross behind that fold of the 
pleura (which sometimes goes by the name of the 
broad ligament) to reach the thoracic pleura and 
to become distributed on it” P.4.
