A diffident young state police lieutenant, accompanied by two other officers, discovers Hitler at the Hanfstaengl Villa. Hitler shakes hands with the young man and says he is prepared to leave. Hitler arrives at the district office at about 21:45 hours and is formally arraigned, before being hustled to the prison at Landsberg. Throughout the tiring trip over winding, deserted roads, Hitler is depressed and sullen. At Landsberg Prison the chief warder is preparing for a possible attempt by Putschists to free him. An army detachment is on its way to stand guard but has not arrived by the time the great nail-studded iron entrance gate creaks open to admit him. He is brought to the fortress section of the prison and put into cell 7, the only one with an anteroom large enough for a military guard.
