Bride of the Birch - The Rosa Coote Letters

Originally published as a serial in the ‘underground’ magazine, The Pearl, in 1879 and 1880, Bride of the Birch is a series of letters from Miss Coote, now an old maid, to a younger lady friend. Miss Coote admits to being wedded to the birch rod and details her experiences of being severely whipped as a child, both at home by her grandfather, and then at school at Miss Flaybum’s Academy. As a woman of property, she sets up her own home with a strict disciplinary régime and the birch rod is in frequent use. The gardener’s wife and her two young daughters incur Miss Coote’s wrath for stealing fruit and all three are soundly flogged, as is a sneak-thief who tries to hide her ill-gotten gains in her private parts!
