Is there any suggestion what Israel Schwartz is saying is:

I left for home from location X at 12:45 am and arrived at Berner Street some time after.

as in...

i left for home at 12:45 am. i decided i would go down berner street first to see if my wife was at our old address. if she wasn,t there, she must be at our new apartment on back-church. when i turned off commercial...

I'd read it as saying, "I was on my way home when, at 12:45 ...." so not when he left for home.

There are two ways to be fooled, one is to believe what isn't true, the other is to refuse to believe that which is true.
