soundly whipped

Clearly he was more afraid of you!

Jack: “You can go now, Mr Hirsch”

Phryne: “You didn’t get anything …

… useful?”

Phryne: “If you’d let me attend the interview”

Jack: “What  …

… so he could hide …

… under your skirts?”

Phryne: “Raymond is no coward, Jack”

Phryne: “When he was seven years old, he got caught red-handed with a bucket of stolen peaches …

… He spent two hours …

… in the police cells and his father whipped him soundly …

… but he never told anyone …

… that I was still up that tree”

Jack: “Clearly he was more afraid of you”

Jack: “Point is, he lies”

While I was in the boat, I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me. When I had taken her to my cabin she was naked—as was their custom. I was filled with a desire to take my pleasure with her and attempted to satisfy my desire. She was unwilling, and so treated me with her nails that I wished I had never begun. But—to cut a long story short—I then took a piece of rope and whipped her soundly, and she let forth such incredible screams that you would not have believed your ears. Eventually we came to such terms, I assure you, that you would have thought that she had been brought up in a school for whores.
