Morris is back in England after spending twenty-one years in India. He tells the Whites about a magical monkey’s paw he got while he was away that gives its owner three wishes. Mr. White wants the monkey’s paw, and Morris lets him keep it. Morris warns the Whites that the wishes never turn out well and tells them to make only sensible wishes. Before bed that night, Mr. White wishes for a specific sum of money. The next day, Herbert goes off to work as usual. A few hours later, a man arrives from his company to inform the Whites that Herbert has been killed in an accident. The man gives the Whites the exact amount of money Mr. White had wished for the night before. The Whites are devastated at the loss of their son until Mrs. White remembers the monkey’s paw.
