Sergeant-Major Morris told the White family all about the monkey paw and the dangers of the wishes so he threw the monkey paw into the fire . Mr.White took it out and was going to take his chances.
The first wish Mr.White made was for 200 pounds to pay his mortgage, but little did he know their was a exchange for the 200 pounds.
When the Whites son went to work a man came to tell them what had happened. He soon told them that there had been an accident at the work and their son had died. The job offered 200 pounds for the sons compensation.
