You are looking at an identified postcard dated August 30, 1911 addressed to Mr. SAMMIE E. SMITH in MUNSONVILLE, NH. from his wife ALICE DORA BRIDGE SMITH.
The postcard is in nice shape with little damage, just some dirty spots (SEE SCANS).
The postcard was given to her husband on his 27th birthday, August 30, 1911.
The postcard is id'd as such "With all the love and best wishes from your wife Alice D. (but it looks like a B.) Smith" to "Mr. Sammie E. Smith, Munsonville, N.H." and the date August 30, 1911
