That is not unusual, but the girls, most of whom are highly intelligent, learn quickly. It is only the stupid girls who have more than their share of stripes, but, sooner or later, even they learn. But, a girl who is beyond her initial trainings, who has well learned her lessons, her movements, attitudes, services, and such, who has come to understand her collar, and that she is truly in it, and that her master is truly her master, and who is sincerely and honestly, and humbly, and passionately and devotedly, endeavoring to please him is unlikely to much feel the lash; she knows, of course, that she will be whipped if she exhibits the least laxity in her service or demeanor. That she expects, as a slave.
