Let {bj} be a sequence of integers satisfying 3 \leq b1 < b2 < b3 < ... and sumj = 1oo\frac 1{bj} < oo. Suppose sumbj \leq x1 = 0(\frac x{log x log log x}). Then the authors prove that the equation n = p+t where p is a prime and t is an integer not divisible by any bj has \frac{\alpha n}{log n}+o(\frac n{log n}) solutions and in particular has at least one solution for all sufficiently large n. Also the authors show that if a certain unproved hypothesis holds then the same result can be established under the slightly milder restriction sumbj \leq x1 = o(\frac{x}{log x}).
