    In this report I sanitise (in the sense of 'bring some sanity to') the arguments of earlier reports detailing the correspondence between sequences (M + hS)-∞<h<∞ of divisors on elliptic and genus two hyperelliptic curves, the continued fraction expansion of quadratic irrational functions in the relevant elliptic and hyperelliptic function fields, and certain integer sequences satisfying relations of Somos type. I note that one may often readily determine the coefficients in those relations by elementary linear algebra.
