At Christmas Helmuth was in Kreisau but came back to Berlin on 5 January. With the New Year he began what was to be the most important of all his wartime friendships, for on 10 January he wrote:

At midday I lunched with Peter Yorck, the brother of Davy [the wife of Hans Adolf von Moltke] — or rather, at his house. He lives out at the Botanic Garden in a house that is small but very well appointed. I believe we found ourselves very much in agreement and will see a lot of each other.
