TMZ has obtained the handwritten letter in which Mel begins, "To my sweet beautiful little Russian." Sources connected to the couple tell us that Mel wrote this letter after spending a passionate week with Oksana in the beginning of their relationship.
Mel continues, "Firstly -- I LOVE YOU!!! ... I could never let you go ... I could derive more fulfillment from a mere thought of you than anyone could imagine."
The love letter is a glimpse into a time before protective orders and lawyer shopping -- when Mel seemed to care for Oksana unconditionally, writing "I'll have soul gasms and perhaps even orgasms thinking of you!"
The letter concludes with Mel stating that he feels like a "new man," and promising that "There is no way I will squander something so precious!"
