but the corpuscles & epithelium are doubtless the

superficial to the pulmonary plexus.
Dr. Heale describes the existance of 
longitudinal channels in the pleura 
around which the pulmonary vessels to 
the pleura are almost entirely distributed,
connected by foramina with certain tubular 
passages, which foramina are the open ex-
tremities of minute bronchial tubes. He 
affords no proof of the existance of those 
channels in his paper. In the notes which 
accompanied his preparations, he advances 
certain reasons in favor of his position, which 
are not I conceive convincing. I could not 
make out the existance of those channels 
from the examination of Preparation A.
Finally Dr. Heale makes the remarkable 
statement that the costal pleura is 
supplied by the pulmonary vessels, but he 
advances no proof of that view. I could not 
find any such supply of pulmonary vessels 
to the pleura in two bodies - one a dog, the 
other a rabbit, that I injected recently.
Dr. Heale states in the notes which accompany 
the paper, that he is about to make
