Abstract: G. Campbell described a technique for producing infinite families of quartic elliptic curves containing a length-9 arithmetic progression. He also gave an example of a quartic elliptic curve containing a length-12 arithmetic progression. In this note we give a construction of an infinite family of quartics on which there is an arithmetic progression of length 10. Then we show that there exists an infinite family of quartics containing a sequence of length 12.
