CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A gushing missive in which 17-year-old Elizabeth Taylor tells her first fiancé that she’ll “never love anyone else — period” is among more than 60 of her unpublished love letters being put up for auction in New Hampshire.

RR Auction in Amherst bought the letters two years ago from William Pawley, who was engaged to Taylor for less than a year in 1949. Officials had estimated they were worth about $25,000 before Taylor’s death last week and expect them now to fetch two or three times that at the online auction in May.

Taylor didn’t just profess what she described as her perfect, complete and mature love for Pawley. The starlet also described studio life, including the filming of “A Place in the Sun.”

Taylor died Wednesday at age 79.
