Franked with 1 cent - 5 cents and a bisected -total of 8 cents.
The letter has the 4 rings ship postmark and a "C" on the back and an arrival postmark St.Thomas April 7.
The bisected stamp was not accepted because the bisected could not
be used with other stamps, therefore stamped "T"
On Convention in Paris in 1878 - it was decided that lack of postage (in centimes) were applied in black numbers next to the stamps. The post office in København (Copenhagen) would then
charge double porto converted to Danish currency.
Not Accepted (missing postage) 2 cents - 10 centimes was applied - "16 øre in red". The 1 cent and 5 cents stamps were accepted for 6 cents.
In Copenhagen - there was uncertainty
about the rules for using bisected stamps with other stamps and as they had previously been asked to repay not accepted porto - the bisected was accepted and stamped Kjøbenhavn April 24 1903.
