The AUS RUSSLAND PORTO unpaid mail transit mark was placed on the letter by Prussian RPO 11.

The full transit mark reads: über BUR.XI EDK.BRG.

EDK.BRG. is Eydtkuhnen-Bromberg

There was a Russian rail line between Vilna and the Prussian border station at Eydtkuhnen (now Chernyshevskoye in Kaliningrad oblast}.

From Eydtkuhnen the Prussian Railway ran west to Berlin.

The boxed P38 was placed on the letter at Aachen on mail to France.

From an article in BJRP I have found that for unpaid letters to France from Poland and Russia, France had to pay Prussia 77.5 centimes per 15 gram from July 1, 1858, and this rate was also valid from January 1, 1862. Does anyone know if this rate also was valid from January 1, 1866, when a new convention was valid from.

I am really not an expert, but the additional postal convention between France and Prussia signed the 3 july 1865, which i think is the one you're referring to, states:

Art. 12
(…)
The French postal administration will pay to the Prussian postal administration, as transit price through the Prussian or German territory for letters, samples of products or printed matters contained in closed dispatches as above mentioned:
1. (…)
2. For transit price for objects contained in dispatches coming from or going to Russia and Poland, the amount of one franc for thirty grams of letters, net weight, and the amount of four centimes for forty grams of samples and printed matters, again net weight.

In my knowledge, this is the last postal convention between France and Prussia. The following one will be with the newborn Deutch Reich in 1871.
