Dr. Harry Stevens inherited his Uncle Henry's mansion after his passing. During the reading of Henry's Will the lawyer handed him a letter that was written by his Uncle Henry just before he was murdered. The letter stated that there is hidden treasure in the mansion that no one knows about except Henry. Dr. Stevens couldn't make out the rest of the writing because it was soaked in his Uncle's blood. Dr. Stevens took total occupancy of the mansion the following week.
As Dr. Stevens was sitting at his Uncle's desk in the library at the mansion he decided that he would invite some of his so called friends over to spend the night and hunt for his Uncle Henry's hidden treasure. The doctor couldn't stand any one of them because all they cared about was money not his friendship. Dr. Stevens said, “This is a perfect idea. I'll mail out invitations to them to spend the night in the mansion which is said to be haunted and tell them whoever finds the treasure by morning will receive a $100,000 dollar reward for finding the hidden treasure.”
