Reading lists (sometimes including commentary) and accounts of social visits appear as well. Roberts was well-connected in literary and aristocratic society, and frequent references are made to members of the Romantic movement, including Augusta Leigh, Lord Byron's half-sister, with whom Roberts often visited. Byron is mentioned upon occasion, including one entry providing an account of the destruction of his memoirs. Other friends include Lady Cork, Lady Bradford, Lady Dungannon, J.H. Wedge, Barbara Hofland, and Sir Henry Taylor. Roberts also documented her visit (and that of Lady Byron) to Mr. DeVille, a phrenologist.
