Thread: was kind to

  1. FW

    was kind to

    He was kind to send me these documents

    Does this sentence mean:
    1-It was kind of him to send me these documents. (We already know that he has sent the documents. I am just pointing out that it was kind of him to do so.)
    2-He sent me these documents and that was a kind thing to do. (I am informing you that he sent me these documents and I am also telling you that that was a kind act,)

    The first is morelikely. The second is possible, but it doesn't strike me as the most obvious use.
