A love letter written by Elizabeth Taylor to her on/off husband Richard Burton is up for sale.

The screen legend penned the touching note to mark their 10th wedding anniversary in 1974, just weeks before they split, and three months before their first divorce.

In the letter, Taylor pledges her love to her unfaithful husband, writing, "My darling (my still) My husband... I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my delight, my pure animal pleasure of you - (with you) - my jealousy, my pride, my anger at you, at times. Most of all my love for you, and whatever love you can dole out to me - I wish I could write about it but I can't... Anyway I lust thee, Your (still) Wife."

The note is expected to be sold for at least $59,500 (£35,000) in an online auction on the Paul Fraser Collectibles website.

The couple remarried in 1975 and divorced for a second time in 1976. Burton died in 1984 and Taylor passed away in 2011.
