What does "It’s made you one. By hokey!" mean? Does it mean - Money made him a gentleman foolishly?
As I said, you’re a gentleman. They say it takes three generations to make one. They’re off. Money’ll do it as slick as soap grease. It’s made you one. By hokey! it’s almost made one of me. I’m nearly as impolite and disagreeable and ill-mannered as these two old knickerbocker gents on each side of me that can’t sleep of nights because I bought in between ’em.”
Mammon and the Archer by O. Henry
