The notation "26 oz" and 52c postage indicate that the sender believed the rate for a newspaper was 2c per ounce. Until July 1, 1863, the rate for non-subscriber newspapers was 2c for the first three ounces plus 2c per additional ounce. Therefore, the correct postage was 48c, and the 52c franking was 4c overpaid.
