Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
..and the young painters, when they came to take their gin-and-water with their lazy, dissolute, clever, jovial senior, used regularly to ask Rebecca if Miss Pinkerton was at home..
dissolute = wanton = licentious
jovial = jocund = cheerful
Thanks for your efforts.
Yes - that's fine.
