History

I found that Montesquieu and Locke both influenced Jefferson in writing the Declaration. I know how Locke influenced him, but not Montesquieu. I can't seem to find information on that.. can someone tell me where I can find a short summary?

All I need is enough info to answer a question in 1 sentence.

Thanks.
