Page 36 - August 29th. — The tongue of the live frog was distended in the ordinary way. After the observation had continued for half an hour, numerous corpuscles were seen outside the vessels, together with a very few blood-discs, in the proportion of about one to ten of the former. The extravasated particles were equally diffused over most part of the tongue. No appearance of rupture could be seen in any of the vessels. The corpuscles were generally distant about Omm>03 from their parietes. After the experiment...
Page 35 - ... colourless elements and protoplasma in the parts affected. At first — in the first stage — these elements adhere but slightly along the inner margin or boundary of the nutrient vessels, and are therefore still within the influence of the circulating current ; belonging, as it were, at this period as much, or rather more, to the blood than to the fixed solids.

I consider therefore as established, — 1st, the passage of these corpuscles "de toute piece" through the capillaries; 2ndly, the restorative power in the blood, which immediately closes the aperture thus formed. It would lead me too far at present to explain how I have obtained purulent matter in these animals similar...
