It seems as if a great deal were attainable in a world where there are so many marriages and decisive battles, and where awe all, at certain hours of the day, and with great gusto and despatch, stow a portion of victuals finally and irretrevably into the bag which contains us. And it would seem also, o a hasty view,that the attainment of as much as possible was the one goal of man's contentious life. (from EL Dorado by Robert.L Stevenson) Hi, everyone! I have no idea about the sentence of and with great gusto and despatch. I have checked despatch, it means delivery, but it seems unsuiable in this sentence. I can't figure out the meaning. Please help me!!
