Bogus Colored Gentlemen

The Covington Journal of July 18, 1862 prints this story.

Two surgeons have returned to New York from Hilton Head on board the Ericsson, sent home by Gen. Hunter for refusing to dance attendance upon the rear of the negro brigade.

It is further stated that the tebels are taking advantage of the love for the negro displayed by General Hunter and other officers. White men, corked and wigged, have under cover of their darkness entered our lines and returned to the rebel camp with valuable information!
