Cast iron baseboard question

Just picked up 19 ft of Crane baseboard. One unit is 13 ft and one is 6 ft. They will be in series one next to the other. If I connect the two on the top ports where I am continuing the series, can I just vent the top end of the second unit? My grandfather was a plumber and I learned a lot from hom regarding plumbing, but this is the first time I have repurposed cast iron baseboards. I'm assuming that since I am using the top port to connect I can just add a bleader on the top of the last register. Thanks all!

    Hot water or steam?

    Here's this instructions for venting on Burnham BaseRay/Gov-Board cast iron baseboard...

    Venting-
    When two or more Gov-Board assemblies are connected in series on a hot water job it is necessary to vent each assembly, unless the assemblies are connected at the top tapping.
    When connected in series on a two-pipe steam job, the assemblies should be connected at the bottom, and only one steam air vent need be used.

    Looks like the top port connection then with a single vent in the top port of the second register.
