    visit with Fleming

    In 1928, while sorting through his pile of dishes, Fleming's former lab assistant, D. Merlin Pryce stopped by to visit with Fleming. Fleming took this opportunity to gripe about the amount of extra work he had to do since Pryce had transferred from his lab

    What is the use of "with" in "visit with Fleming" when without it, it can make sense?

    Re: visit with Fleming

    It is just a way of saying "to visit".
