One day, the soldiers threaten to flog Johnny simply for walking his horse down the street and being employed by the Boston Observer. However, the soldier who is supposed to do the flogging, Pumpkin, helps Johnny escape by whispering to him to use his spurs. Johnny does so and Goblin bolts away, leaving the British soldiers in the dust.
