English grammar help. Grammar questions from ESL learners
I have come across the following sentence in a dictionary recently:
I was not let see him.
Is this grammatically correct? Or should it be TO SEE after the verb LET
in the passive voice?

Unacceptable as contemporary usage, in my view, either with or without 'to'!
--> I was not allowed to see him.
I suggest you purchase a new dictionary!
