A story about Mr. Kaplan and Delores Molesworth

“Mr. Kaplan wears a shirt and tie every day, although he is not an impeccable dresser. Sometimes his shirt and tie are a questionable match, but he is always neat. He has a tie which has a picture of a cabin in the woods with smoke coming out of the chimney and running up to the knot at his neck, which particularly amuses Mrs. Molesworth. She told him she likes it and, after receiving the compliment, he wears it proudly once a week.”
