Abstract: This note examines the asymptotic evaluation of two infinite series considered recently in [1] and [2], After a transformation to a more convenient form, elementary methods are used to derive extended asymptotic results (in one case the complete asymptotic expansion in the appropriate limit), and the numerical performance of the expansions is illustrated.
