addition to the original matter, other than as authorized by law, shall not be admitted
to the mails, nor delivered, except upon payment of postage for matter of the first
class, deducting therefrom any amount which may have been prepaid by stamps affixed,
unless by direction of a duly authorized officer of the Postal Service such postage
shall be remitted.
Whoever knowingly conceals or incloses any matter of a higher class in that of a lower
class, and deposits the same for conveyance by mail, at a less rate than would be
charged for such higher class matter, shall be fined under this title.
