begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendation from you?
New Defender's Study Bible Notes

But Paul reminds them that he needed no such letters. The Corinthian believers themselves were his “epistles,” for they were his own children in the faith.
