Chapter 6 Summary

The Time Traveler begins to share the Eloi's fear of the dark. He needs to go underground to find the machine, but is afraid to go alone. He begins exploring to the Southwest and finds the Palace of Green Porcelain. The next day, he descends one of the wells, in spite of Weena's protest. As he descends, the sound of machinery grows louder. When he enters the tunnel, he sees three Morlocks and discovers they are afraid of fire.
