A two-potential formalism based on the equations of Alt, Grassberger, and Sanhas is used to generate elastic nucleon-deuteron scattering amplitudes by combing P- and D-wave nucleon-nucleon forces in first order with "exact" nucleon-deuteron scattering amplitudes for S-wave forces. Elastic differential cross sections at 14.1 MeV and nucleon polarizations at 10.04, 14.1, and 22.7 MeV are presented. The cross sections are very accurate while the polarizations are in qualitative agreement with experiment except at 22.7 MeV.
