Not illustrated. 1857 edition. Excerpt: ...globules -m in a continued stream, while in the sime fluid, in the same vessel, are a great multitude of other (lymph, No. 3) globules, which do not move, or do Bo very sluggishly; everj now and then they move slowly, apparently urged on by the repeated knocks they receive from the blood globules. It would appear that after the capillary vessels have been acteJ on by the salt, the round (lymph) globules accumulate in an unusual manner, and the blood globules repeatedly slide over and knock against them. In some of the vessel-, there is a rapid stream of blood in the centre, whilst at the circumference there are auj stationary, round, spotted globules, which do not obey the impulse which urges the stream of blond, but remain, or move on slowly, by little starts, at uncertain intervals, and with unequal pace." This account corresponds very exactly with what 1 have myself olwerved; but I should not consider the experiment so conclusive with regard to inflammation, inasmuch as the chemical action of tho salt might have been concerned in the product on of the lymph globules. In my observations, 1 was careful to use no initant which has any known chemical action on the blood. The greater prevalence of the pale globules in the motionless layer had been noticed by Wagner and others; nnd their more abundant production in inflamed parts has been mentioned by Mr. Gulliver. 1 TranB. of Provincial Med. and Surg. Assoc, 1813, p. 240. 416. I varied these observations in a great many ways, and always found considerable or continued irritation of the vessels in the frog's web to be attended with the appearance and adhesion of the colourless globules; and that when the irritant used is at all strong, or frequently applied, many vessels become more
