Real photo postcard of the West Hampden, Maine, home of Raymond Goodell (1857-1941).
[See another post that features two photographs, likely graduation photographs of Archie John Goodell (1895-1985) and Lyndon O. Goodell (1900-1982) of Hampden, Maine, who were related to Raymond.]
Unused postally but with a March 22, 1914 message on reverse, possibly from Raymond's wife Harriet S. (Barrows) Goodell (1858-1948), "Hattie", to Theo L. (Jose) Barrows (1869-1953), wife of Hattie's brother George Murch Barrows (1866-1944). They were the parents of Maine Governor Lewis Orin Barrows (1893-1967).
If you look closely, you will see two people standing in front of the house.

I am glad you are feeling better. The pain in my foot I think was caused by a corn, I think. I gave it a good going over and it is all right. Theo, if Ruth is still there please tell her, Good wants Fred to send him today [?]egg beaters like the one she has. I hope Chas. will get home without taking cold - the weather is so bad. I often think what a cosy time you and Ruth are having. Be careful and get well. Love????
If you have information to share on the Goodell and Barrows families, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
