My Red Fox edition has it exactly the way Ed cites. But elsewhere (at least five times, but without my doing an exhaustive search) it seems to appear only as "dispatch."
I'm inclined to think Allan's got the right of it, though. (And for what it's worth, I myself use "despatch" pretty-well exclusively.)
