                                statement that the vessels distributed on the 
surface of the bronchia being chiefly to the 
pulmonary system, but the complete absence 
of anastomosis between the pulmonary and 
bronchial capillaries rests solely on the negative 
result of the author’s injections, which are directly 
opposed to the positive statements of many high 
authorities, according to whom the bronchial 
arteries and veins can be injected from the 
pulmonary veins and vice versa.
Lastly, the author describes the terminal 
bronchial tubes as splitting up into certain minute 
branches, which, as he considers the description 
to be an original one, he terms “pedicels” P27.28.
He does not allude to the so called intercellular 
passages, and to me the distinction is not 
clear between them and what the author 
terms “pedicels”.
