Augustus Billingsworth is a cryptman who speaks in falsetto (whether this voice is affected or not remains unknown). Oftentimes he hides his ruddy, eighty-year-old skin by placing canvas bags over his head. He met "Bertram" once on the promenade during an autumnal dusk, just as the pale lights from the shore began to limn the gray-green water, but didn't much care for him.
