Herbert is telling the white family about the monkeys paw.
Mr.White wished for 200 pounds and then the monkeys paw moved in his hand.
Herbert sees strange faces in the fire and disides to pore water on it.
Mrs.White sees a man walking up the sidewalk and knocks on the door. Mrs.White opens the door and the man says that he has news about their son Herbert. The man says that their son got caught in machinery and died, he offers 200 pounds for compensation.
Mrs.White wakes Mr.White up and is telling him to wish their son back to life with the Monkeys paw.
Mr.White makes the wish and a few minuets later they hear knocking on the door. Mr.White tries to stop his wife from going to the door but he couldn't, so he finds the Monkeys paw and makes what ever is at the door to go away.
