New to my collection, part of a small group of covers and postal cards I recently purchased. It's trimmed on one side and part of the text is missing. I can't read much of it. I do not know where military post station 7 was located, nor can I discover that. Can you help me decipher the address and other notations?

It is a boxer rebellion-petschili (north china) fieldpost cover!

First in German :

Handstempel aus Deutschland
Ortsname : Feldpost ( PAOTINGFU )
Verwendung : von 2-11-1900 bis 25-07-1901
Stempeltext : K.D. FELD-POSTSTATION No 7.
Anmerkung : Feldpoststempel der K.D. Feldpoststation No. 7 in Paotingfu ( ca 100 km südwestlicht von PEKING)
Die feldpoststation(en) wÜrden für die deutschen Truppen des Ostasiatischen Expeditionskorps errichtet.

Translated something like this :
Hand stamp from Germany
Place Name: Field Post (PAOTINGFU)
Use: from 2-11-1900 to 25-07-1901
Stamp text: K.D. FIELD POST STATION No 7.
Note: field postmark of the K.D. Feldpoststation No. 7 in Paotingfu (about 100 km south-west of PEKING)
The field post station (s) would be built for the German troops of the East Asian Expeditionary Force.
