I have these comments:
a) First letter could also be a 'T' given how defined he makes his 'R'.  I

d) Fourth letter is between the 'e' and the 'f' looking letter.  It is not

as everyone seems to think.  His 'n's are sharper and not rounded.  I think
it is simply an 's' with a squiggle as an ending.

Then switching to Gary's suggestion on page 128,  "Pisakow" is pretty clear,
except that to me it looks like "Piaskow".  ?  ?

I agree with Gary's remark that the writer is not consistent in his writing 
On page 130, line at the top of page, 2nd. column from the right, the word

"Wassersucht", all 3 "s" 's are shaped differently.
