The page is written in German shorthand. It is the first page of a diary of a trip from Germany to the Middle East in 1902. I would like a transcription in German.

3/19/2019 6:49 AM This and the following pages are in Gabelsberger shorthand, an antiquated script that is quite different from modern standard Shorthand. Today, only a few specialists can read this script. I doubt that you can find anybody at GerSIG who can read this.
I would suggest that you contact a specialist for Gabelsberger shorthand.
I know of two of them:
Erich Ruff

or Andreas Kloner
