This is written on the back of my husband's grandfather's passport from Russia in 1910 (now Belarus). I'm guessing it is Yiddish but I'm not sure.

Above I can make out the Yiddish word (crossed out)
"senteril 0826"

Then there is written:

"der pas mit der
dokter cart fun shif
ven ikh bin gekumen
forin in Amerike"

In English, I think it is:
"The passport with the
doctor card from the ship,
when I came along
to America"
