(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A282637 a(1) = 1. a(n) is the smallest unlisted natural number whose name in (American) English ends with the letter a(n-1) starts with, and makes the sequence extendable. 1

COMMENTS

"a(n) ... makes the sequence extendable" means the name of a(n) does not start with any of the letters f and s.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..66.

EXAMPLE

38 is followed by 88 as 48, 58, 68 and 78 cannot make the sequence extendable.
