Default Jewes

If the chalked writing is jewes, which I think it is, it means judges, or judgement.

Hello Bill,

First of all welcome to the boards.

Do you have anything to back up your assertion or are you simply expressing your opinion?

I don't believe in the 'hidden message' theory at all. Just for the record.

So judges is juges in French, I see.

I agree with you that there was no "hidden" message. I think the message was very open and straightforward. The problem was that not many could read it correctly and understand it.

Thank you. Hope I'll be useful.
I do it's in the dictionary.
jewes
jewes, -esse
var. juise Obs., judgement.
Jews, Juwes, Jewes, Jeuwes, or Juews.

A GRAMMAR OF MODERN INDO-EUROPEAN
you......... juwes / juwe /
law ........jewos (jwesos)
judge................ jewesdiks
just ...............................jwestos

So, if the word is jewes, what's he saying?
I am judge, jury and excutioner?

Default Jews, Juwes, Jewes, Jeuwes, Juews, or Juives.

Home Office minute sheet, 30th Oct 1888, stated the word Jews was spelt Jewes as opposed to Juwes. (HO 144/221/A49301C).
So its either:
Jews, a religious group.
Juive, specifically a female member of a religious group. Also, a well-known grand opera - Fromental Halvy. La Juive. First performed at Covent Garden in 1835 and revived throughout the century.
Juives, French for Jews.
Jewes, Judge, judgement and/or law.
So its either Jew, (whether French, female or an opera about a Jewess) or its judgement. Its also slang. Jewes akin to jobs worth; hes a right jobs worth. Negative a stickler for rules.
The judges/law are not the men who will be blamed for nothing.
So, as I favour judgement . . . hes saying OK. I dont know, but something like:
The judges are the men to blame? Its their fault. Whose fault? The men of the laws fault. Nuance: The police arent innocent?
