```Thank you, Richard Mathar.  Looking at my handwritten text, I had
indeed found a(30) = 147 and failed to type it in the email.

I'm close to submitting the sequence, or asking you if you should like
to, with the comment by Robert Gerbicz (i.e. giving 327 as the last
value shown and commenting that all greater integers are also in the

I take it that this would be preferable to giving the complement of
the sequence?

How many values are there from 14 through 327 inclusive?

Best,
