Abstract: Asymptotic relations are obtained for the number $ {p_A}(n)$ of partitions of the integer n into summands from a set A of integers. The set A is subject to certain conditions; however the only arithmetic condition is that A have property $ {P_k}$ of Bateman and Erdös. A conjecture of Bateman and Erdös concerning the kth differences of $ {p_A}(n)$ may be verified using these asymptotic relations.
