In R/1-9 (especially 2 Corinthians 7:6-15), we learn of a dramatic improvement in the congregation’s attitude toward Paul, attributable in part to the X-Letter; in part, to the good offices of Titus, the probable bearer of the letter; and in part, to the Corinthians’ coming to their senses.

The letter known as the "Second" Epistle to the Corinthians, while obviously written after the First Epistle, may not have been written as one single letter, but it is possible that it is a combination of two or more letters which Paul wrote to the Christians in Corinth.
For instance, 2 Corinthians 1:15 speaks of Paul thinking of visiting Corinth a second time, though in 2 Corinthians 2:1 he decides not to visit them while saddened by their behavior.
