"Do you think I fear the Child have nursed?"
" A man from "Maw and Meg gins" came to the White's home and say that their son was caught in a machinery. Mrs. White was so upset that the next night she was crying so hard it made her husband wake up from sleep.
Mrs. White gets every upset, but the next night she said the monkey's paw could bring her son back to life. Mr. White refused and she said to go and get the monkey's paw and wish her son back to life again.
Mr. White didn't want to get the paw because he couldn't look at his son and he would only be able to see his real son by looking at his clothing. Mrs. White says to get it cause she think her husband is afraid of her son and she want's her son to come back to live and live again.
"He as been dead for ten days now, and beside he- I would not tell you before- but I could only recognize him by his clothing."
