Mensagem:  Scratch =Write (something) hurriedly or awkwardly.
It seems to me he meant "in a hurry".
I am more in favour of this one, since Sherlock hints a sense of urgency, sort of, when he says afterwards "it would be injustice to hesitate".
=========
Other sense would be "from the scratch/the beggining".
