 Separation of Chang and Eng

 

It is said that the celebrated Siamese Twins are about to go to Paris, in order to submit to a surgical operation which will separate them after a union of fifty nine years.

 

They were brought to England from Siam in the year 1827 or 1828, by Capt. Bunker, at present living in New York, and from a series of years they were exhibited to the public at all great centers of civilization.

 

Having visited America, they determined to make this land their home. 

 

They bought a valuable tract of land in North Carolina, married two sister, and settled in the ordinary routine of a farmer's dairy life. 

 

Each of them is now the father of nine children.
