Three words I cannot make out
« on: Saturday 03 January 15 17:12 GMT (UK) »
I have been transcribing an affidavit and am stuck on three words can anyone help please? The words are underlined in red and the first word looks like  "Eco**ure " and the second and third words look as if they say "unto pu***"

Thanks Steve

First word looks like erazure, (erasure?)but does that make any sense?

Thanks Mike
                   Erazure would make perfect sense as the deponent was  complaining that alterations had  been made to the Will, and when you read it in context with the rest of the affidavit it makes sense.

Thanks again   Steve

Wondering if the last two words are an abbreviation for notary public.
