In your example, the th is followed by an apostrophe and th cannot ever be read as the word this unless its stands alone. In the case of the "sh" here, the apostrophe comes before the sh. Regardless of whether there is an apostrophe before or after, the sh is an admonition of silence, and therefore no contraction can be used. 🙂 If you still have doubts, please call the braille development section of Library of Congress and see if they can provide you with someone who can give you a different answer. 🙂
