```Dear Zak,

We can show the stronger assertion:  all terms == 21 (mod 30).

Proof:

19n+2 is prime so n is odd, namely
n = 1 (mod 2)  (I).
19n+2, 19n+4 are two primes greater than 3 and 19n+2 = n-1 <>0(mod 3) ,
19n+4 = n-2<>0 (mod 3) so n<>1 (mod 3) and n<>2 (mod 3) hence,
n=0 (mod 3)  (II).
Also since 19n+2, 19n+4, 19n+8 & 19n+10 are four primes greater than 5
and 19n+2 = 2-n (mod 5) , 19n+4 = 4-n (mod 5)
19n+8 = 3-n (mod 5) & 19n+10 = -n (mod 5) hence n = 1 (mod 5) (III).
From (I) & (III) we conclude that n = 1 (mod 10) (IV).
And from (IV) and (II) we conclude that n is of the form 30k+21 namely
n = 21 (mod 30).
