Punished in Servitude
by J.L. Jones
The place is Eastport, USA, in the early 1800s; a time when young desirable women might be hauled before the local judge accused of immoral behaviour, stripped and sentenced to a very public whipping before the whole town.
Local landowner and leader of the community, Horace Crawford, is a firm believer in this kind of justice.
Fortunately for him, his friend the Judge also feels the same way.
