It appears this character is using なり, an old copula roughly equivalent to だ or です in the modern day, as just something they say at the end of their sentences to give them an 'old' feel. なり did not follow し adjectives, the precursor to い adjectives, as し could stand on its own. かくとよし would be equivalent to かくといいです or かくといいよ (though I'm not sure if the と conditional was used at the time)
