    2. I wished he would come to see me 2 days after next.
    3. I wished he would come to see me the summer after next.
    4. I wished he would come to see me 2 summers after next.

    Thanks a lot.

    Default Re: I wished he would come to see me the day after next.

    Hello Peter,
    I wish he had...
    I hope he will...

    2 and 4 aren't natural - why not say "in three days" or "in three years"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
