Russian Postmark help needed


Can anyone identify the Russian postmark at bottom? The top is Petrograd Julian Dater but I cannot identify the bottom postmark. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks

Thank you so much! So the mail arrived in Petrograd on 4/7 and left on 4/13 , why it took a whiole week long? Because of war? Also I am attaching a censer chop, is this a common censer marking? Thank you again!

I think World War 1 put a lot of strain on the postal system, and Petrograd was an important censorship center, so the mountains of mail that had to be censored there were delayed almost all the time.
The censor marking is Type 13 (in Speeckaert's handbook of censor markings) and is pretty common.

One more question: are both Petrograd daters are Julian daters? Or just the top one? Thank you

They're both in the Julian calendar. Petrograd didn't switch to the Gregorian calendar until 1918.
