    Smile An extract from Wuthering heights

    Dear Frineds,

    With that concluding word, the whole assembly, exalting their pilgrim's staves, rushed round me in a body; and I, having no weapon to raise in self-defence, commenced grappling with Joseph, my nearest and most ferocious assailant, for his.

    Above is an extract from W.H by Emily Bronte. Now let me know why that last two words i.e for his, are stands here. What sense do they gives? How we connect them to the sentences came before it?

    Thank you n have a gud day!
    Joe

    "His" refers to "weapon."
