Mr. White decided to use the monkey's paw. As Herbert sat down at the piano and played some notes, Mr. White held out his arm, and wished for 200 hundred pounds. In this part of the story, despite Sergent-Major Morris's warning about the paw, Mr. White still made a wish.
Mrs.White opened the door to a well-dressed man. He was from Herbert's job, Maw and Meggins, who came to inform them that Herbert had been caught in machinery. The company wanted to offer the couple a compensation of 200 pounds. In this part of the story, Mr.White faints because he relized that the wish came true but he "killed his own son" in return for the money.
Mr. White used his second wish to bring thier son back, because Mrs. White missed him terribly. The couple started to hear knocks echoing through the house. Mr. White scared to find thier son alive but mangled, used his last wish as Mrs. White was running to the door to open it. This part of the sotry shows how Mr. White was afraid of the consepquences that the second wish will bring upon them because of the experience with the first.
