    entertainer/ though this should be indifferent

    Dear teachers,


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


    In the former case, it is well known that the entertainer provides what fare he pleases; and though this should be very indifferent, and utterly disagreeable to the taste of his company, they must not find any fault;

    entertainer = a person who tries to please or amuse; a owner who extends hospitality

    though this should be indifferent = though this should be not particularly well

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
