Hola. ¿Qué significa "more to the purpose" en el texto siguiente?: it melted out of my sight, it faded into nothing in a second of time, and what was more to the purpose, my hand passed through the spectre as if it had been composed of nothing more tangible than a fog spray.
Este texto procede de la novela The haunted house at Latchford, publicada en 1872.
Gracias por vuestra ayuda.
