The mystery of the Monkeys Paw is a cleverly thought out short story This story had three main parts These parts were the first wish the second wish and the third wish The first wish was the only tragic wish that was granted MrWhite his son Herbert and an old man were sitting around playing chess There was a knock at the door and Mr White answered it to let the man in His name was Sergeant-Major Morris He sat down in the seat nearest the fire and after several glasses of whiskey he began to talk He talked about some of his war experiences and then of India His last story was about a magical mummified monkeys paw The sergeant-major tells the family that the old dried out monkeys paw has a spell put on it by an old fakir The story continues and then MrWhite and the sergeant-major trade Later Mr White wishes for 200 pounds A man comes and visits the Whites telling them that their son Herbert had been killed and then he gibes them 200 pounds The consequence of Mr Whites first wish is the main reason he uses a second and third wish Mr White did not want to use a second wish but his wife insisted that they wish their son back to life Mr White wishes his son back to life but nothing happens so they go to sleep They are sleeping when they hear a knocking sound at their front door Mrs White goes downstairs to answer the door even though Mr White told her not to answer the door Mrs White approached the door while Mr White looked for the monkeys paw At the very moment Mr White unlocked the door Mr White found the monkeys paw and made his third and final wish Just as he made his wish the knocking stopped
