The Two Voyages of the Tom Thumb

For many years after my disappearance people searched for me which was a pointless exercise as I had never existed in the first place.

I was the creation of a writer and an artist

Today I am on my boat the Tom Thumb off of the coast of Chile

The weather is poor and storms threaten

In view of this I am heading towards port as I do not wish to drown in a shipwreck

My name is Julien and I was not born on the 6th of April 1902

No record exists of my birth

So there will be no record of my death if a storm overwhelms me and I drown

My mother and father are waiting for me in Santiago

Which is rather odd as both my parents are dead

Having perished in the wreck of the first Tom Thumb
