Wax seal


Hello,

this seal is on the backside of a registered business letter from Poland to France. The year was 1861.
It is one of four seals on the backside and it seems that this is the only official one.

Is it an official post-seal ?
Can anybody translate it ?

It is an official seal which reads as follows:

Włocławek ( russ. Vlotslavsk)
Postal Expedition
(for) the receipt of money and parcels

Thank you for the translation.

I'm unsure of the reason for sealing the letter by the post-office.
I know several registered letters of this time with only one private seal on the backside.
Possibly the post office worker meant, the letter wasn't tidy sealed by the sender.

Any other explanation ?
