    considerable assiduity

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentence?

    Before he went to India he was too young to partake of the delightful pleasures of a man about town, and plunged into them on his return with considerable assiduity.

    assiduity = eagerness

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
