    'be set to' and cancelation

    Probably it is correct to say
    "He was to leave next day but the the situation changed and he remained in the town."

    But is it correct to use cancelation in sentences with 'be set to'
    "He was set to leave next day but the the situation changed and he remained in the town." ?

    Thank you.

    I believe the usage is correct. But, in my opinion you should say "he was set to leave the following day...", since you are reporting what happened. However, I'm not a native speaker, so please wait for more precise answers (and dear experts: corrections are welcome as usual )
