A Match Made in Heaven

Samuel Butler, letter to Eliza Mary Ann Savage (November 21, 1884), in Letters between Samuel Butler and Miss E.M.A. Savage, 1871-1885 (London: Jonathan Cape, 1935), pp. 349-350:
Yes it was very good of God to let Carlyle and Mrs. Carlyle marry one another and so make only two people miserable instead of four, besides being very amusing.
Hat tip: Ian Jackson.
