Sergeant Major Morris had warned Mr. White not to keep the monkey’s paw and make any wishes to it. He had warned that the wishes one asked for to the monkey’s paw were granted but in a way that the person would wish his wishes weren’t granted. Mr. White paid no heed to his warnings and wished to receive two thousand pounds. His wish was granted when he received the sum as a compensation from the company after his son’s death. In this way, the sergeant’s warning turned out to be true.
No, I do not think Lord Weston responded sensibly to the situation. I think he made a mountain out of a molehill. It’s evident from the drama ‘Remember Caesar’ that Lord Weston has high regards for Julius Caesar, he almost thinks of himself similar to him and that is why when he finds a note in his pocket saying ‘Remember Caesar’ and the date is 15th of March, he immediately assumes that someone is going to assassinate him. He even begins making stories that the note must have been placed in his pocket by someone the other day when in fact, he had written the note and placed it in his pocket. The whole drama just shows how Lord Weston exaggerates the otherwise ordinary situation into an assassination drama.
