This time it's the polish philately which is about russian philately. The text is quite clear.

Mosca, Aprile 1896
I kindly ask a (kind) information (uwiadomienie is not a polish word. My wife told me it can be a russicism), if it could be sold in Krakow a little lot of stamps (marek should be marks, i think it's stamps, in russian pochtowaja marka?) - about 6 thousands - mainly russian and to 7 kopeks. If possible, how much would you give for this lot?

The letter is directed to the editorial unit of "Filatelisty polskiego".

It has been used a 3 kopeks postal stationery, which was intended for inland usage. The rate for a postcard abroad in 1896 was 4 kopeks. So the postcard has been taxed for 2 kopecs, 2 time the unpaid difference. I want to underline a little difference post-pre UPU. Before UPU, mail could be sent paid by the sender (Franco) or unpaid, to be paid by the recipient (Porto). If a letter was not fully paid, it was considered as an unpaid letter, and taxed with the difference between the rate for an unpaid letter and the paid amount (am i correct?).

There appears that there once was a stamp added to the card in the upper left corner. Probably 1 kopeck.

It appears to have fallen off after being cancelled.

No Krakow arrival postmark?
