Although Mr. B does terrible things to Pamela, calling her names like "slut" and "hussey" and eventually abducting her, Pamela protects her virtue. She writes long passages in her diary about her trials with Mr. B, which he eventually reads and repents of his behavior. Pamela forgives him and, despite anything that makes much sense, the pair marry.
