What's the meaning of the underlined?
Thanks in advance.
Having accomplished this much, one of the children was dispatched to get old of the doctor. He came, gave Grandpa a thorough examination, and was just about to congratulate him on his excellent state of health when my mother went nto action.
She planted herself firmly in front of the doctor, drew herself up to her full height of four feet, ten inches, and told him in no uncertain terms, that Grandpa had suffered a severe shock and concussion of whatever brains he had. How else to explain the fact that he walked away from the chance of a lifetime! Did the doctor have another explanation? Ha?
