Nathaniel Hawthorne based his novel off of real-life Mary Bailey Beadle who received 40 stripes and branded with the letter A for adultery in 1651. But in the novel, soon the letter A started to mean 'Able'. "Such helpfulness was found in her,—so much power to do, and power to sympathize,—that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman’s strength."
