I thought possibly or probably.

There's no down stroke for the 'p' though. How about "disorderly"?

Definitely maybe. I can see the 2 'ff''s but the spacing of the other letters doesn't seem to work.

If anyone has a link to a high definition version of the original photo, I can have a better go at clearing out the scribble.

Hi,

I did get several words out of my first attempt but I was rushing. I'll have another go later and we can compare notes. I used the basic Microsoft Paint package and found a colour very similar to the paper so overlaid the scribble. It is tricky in some places though. When I get home later I'll try and get a higher definition image and will also reproduce the entire page it relates to.

I have a feeling 1.35am is relevant to the Eddowes murder too, but can't confirm at the mo.

Thanks!

The more I look at it, the more I think the final word could be "murderer" as you suggest.

On reflection, I think the first paragraph could read something like this...

"Thus itís said to have been at 1:35 : by that time the victim had been already murdered."

It could be 'victim' or 'woman' and 'already' looks good, but what is the word before 'already'? It doesn't look like 'been.'

Hi Robert, I left a couple of the circle loops of Swanson's scribble on that word, I've had another go and erased them, so you can better see the word. So I think "been" could fit.
