It is most probably like this: Purple Chinese postmark: 乙巳年正月十日, means January 10, 1905, 直隶(Chihli or Zhili), an old province name of China.
Tientsin, on the French postmark, included.
But the year is different. So not sure whether it is a useful postmark.
A map of Chihli was attached for reference.
