They stroll and converse, with President Jefferson dominating the conversation, for the most part. Afterwards, the three visitors take their leave. (Note: In 1802 Jefferson wrote a letter to a Baptist congregation in Danbury Connecticut that included the following: "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.” This matter might have been a subject of his discussion with the delegation at Montecello.)
