Morris tells about the monkey's paw then throws it into the fire and Mr. White grabs the paw . You can have it but beware the consicinces and don't blame me, wish for something sensible.
Herbert tell his father to wish for 200 pounds to pay for the house as major Morris walks out the house and the gate shuts with a loud bang. As the father wishes and the paw jumps out of his hand and father falls back on the creaky floor.
Herbert walks out the door and to work. While Mrs. White is talking she stops suddenly. "Whats wrong?" asks Mr. White. There are two people by the gate wondering if it is the right house. Finally they come in." I am very sorry to inform you that you son the late Herbert was injured in the machinery, the company has choosen to compensate you with 200 pounds."
