CONCORD, N.H. (AP)- Before becoming a bride eight times over, Elizabeth Taylor was a 17-year-old starlet scribbling letters to her first fiance, charting on pale pink stationery his progression from her one-and-only to the one who got away. “I’ve never known this kind of love before — it’s so perfect and complete — and mature,” Taylor wrote to William Pawley on May 6, 1949. “I’ve never loved anyone in my life before one third as much as I love you — and I never will (well, as far as that goes — I’ll never love anyone else — period).” Taylor, who died last week at age 79, was engaged to Pawley in 1949, just before her first marriage. More than 60 of the letters she wrote him between March and October of that year will be auctioned in May by RR Auctions of Amherst,
