The next morning, Herbert goes off to work as usual and Mrs. White watches for the two hundred pounds to show up. In the afternoon,they are informed Herbert died in a accident at the company. While the company is not responsible, they offer money (200 pounds) to the White family and leave. Mrs.White faints. Full of sadness over Herbert's death, Mr. and Mrs. White bury him in the cemetery two miles from their home. One night Mrs. White thinks of a grand idea, to wish her son back to life. Mr.White is initially against it, however he is convinced and wished him back. Nothing happens, so the Whites go back to bed. Soon after, someone – or something – starts pounding on the door. They are sure it is Herbert. Mr.White doesn't want him to come in, so he wishes for something. The pounding stops. When Mrs.White opens the door, she screams in agony, as outside of the door is nothing.
