The headmistress plans to cane them, but their teacher asks to slipper them herself in order to establish her authority.The Oak TreeAnne and Julia are snitched on by Imogen, and their house mistress comes to catch them smoking just as they are experimenting with sex. The consequences are severe, although they are at least spared being sent to the headmistress and expelled.A Good Moral InfluenceImogen is in high favour with her house mistress for reporting the behaviour of Anne and Julia in the previous story. However, Imogen becomes worried that caning Anne and Julia was beyond the house mistresss powers and Imogen foolishly reports her to the headmistress, who is not amused.Publishers Note: While the stories in this book share a school setting, it is made clear in all of them that the characters are over the age of eighteen. In addition to realistic depictions of corporal punishment as it was used in English schools in past years, some of the stories also include sexual elements.
