Johnny realizes that Pumpkin’s clean uniform will arouse suspicion, so he dirties it up and smears some blood on his face to look like he has been in battle at Lexington. He is able to pass himself off as a British private with great success. Johnny convinces some sailors to row him across the river by claiming he a message for Earl Percy.
