Hopelessly in love, Barton wrote: "In my poor and suffering youth, I dreamed only of such a woman. And now, when from time to time the dream comes back to me, I stretch out my hand and realize that she is here, next to me. If you didn't meet her or didn't know her, you've lost a lot in your life."

I love you too much."Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Taylor is celebrating her 32nd birthday in New York with Barton, who at that time was starring in the Broadway play Hamlet directed by John Glifeld.
