Plate 2

4 Section of zi venous sinus in the spleen of a, 24-min. pig embryo. Some of the mesenchyme cells lining the sinus are elongated into typical reticulo-endothelial struutiircs. The cell (encZ0.c.) on the right wall shows strongly basophilic eyt-oplasin and a nucleus similar to that of :1 large lymphocyte. The cell is being cut off from the mesenchyme.

5 A group of hemocytoblasts in the rnesenchyinc of the spleen of a 4—cm. pig embryo. The structure of the nuclei of cells A and B is intermediate between tliat of the mesenchyme cell, n7,c.~'.r:,, and the lymphocytoblast C.

6 A slightly oblique section of an artery and surrounding mesenchyme in the spleen of at 735-0110. pig embryo. The presence of numerous small and mediumsized dark nuclei indicates the beginning of the differentiation of small and medium-sized lymphocytes from the mesenchyme.
