On  Response 
4/7/2016 3:05 AM father: Eliasz Lejzowowicz FRYDMAN,25,shoemaker
mother: Doba Szejna Chaimowna (= daughter of Chaim), 20,
child: Haja Rochla. The child's name is also in the margin on the left along with Eliaszowna (daughter of Eliasz) FRYDMAN.

The reg. date at the top seems to mention both April 20 and May 2,1848, so not sure what's meant there. The DOB seems to be April 27 that year.
4/7/2016 3:48 AM Precisions
1 The father's name is Eliasz Lejzorowicz (not Lejsowowicz), son of Lejzor
2 The two dates of the act (April 20 / May 2) correspond to the usual differentiation "old style" (Julian calendar, kept in use by the Orthodox church and official in the Russian Empire) / "new style" (Gregorian calendar, i.e. our common calendar, in use in the Catholic church, and official calendar in the Kingdom of Poland before the parting of Poland and annexation of the greatest part of it by the Russian Empire)
Usually, in Polish Civil status acts, even under Russian rule, only the new style was in use, but there were local exceptions. As there are two Ssczuczyn towns, which is this one (is it now in Poland, or in Belarus ?)
3 so the date of birth does not "seem", but is also given as April 15th / April 27th with the same 12-days difference between both calendars.
