Is it not a rather over-inked specimen of a rarely seen AR3 Katiye, Yemen postmark (C&W Part2 no.87)?  The other two are negative seals which look Yemeni too. The text? No idea!

I think it is a postmark of Kutahya in Turkey (type AR3) The stationery was sent to Dersaadet(Istanbul) and has a Stambul arrival postmark. The seals on reverse are probably not postal.

The postmark is KUTAHYA .Too much ink makes it look different.
