Hola. ¿Qué significa "had I marvelled" en el texto siguiente?:
"I wonder what may be his opinion on the subject of ghosts," I thought, as I sprang out of bed, and flinging open the window, looked forth over the country bathed in the morning glory of glittering dew and molten gold.
Perhaps it might have been more to the purpose had I marvelled what my own opinion was on the same matter; but I shrank from a strict mental examination at the time.
No le veo sentido a "si me hubiera maravillado." ¿Quizá podría ser "si me hubiera preguntado"?
El texto está sacado de la novela The haunted house at Latchford, publicada en 1872.
Gracias por la ayuda.
