"muster" in the sentence


#1

Hi, please could you tell me what verb “muster” can mean in the following sentence?
“It took Jay Strauss, an American with the warmth and directness that no one else in this English hospital could muster, to bring her into line”.


#2

It means “gather”. In this context it means he had the warmth and directness that no one else at the hospital had.


#3

‘Muster’ suggests - collect, gather together also gather. It is often used in this sense- He had to muster all his strength to lift the heavy object.

Thank you very much for the help!
