Is using double object pronouns ungrammatical?

0

"I'm going to send him them."

That sentence sounds horrid and I thought it was grammatically incorrect.


Shouldn't it be constructed in one of these two ways?

  "I'm going to send them to him."
  "I'm going to send him the papers."

 

I have read that it is necessary (a "rule") to use either a prepositional phrase or one pronoun.

I have also read that the contruction is fine.

 

Which is true?

 

Thank you for your help!
