The oath or affirmation of the marshals shall be, “I, A. B. marshal of the district of

do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will well and truly cause to be made, a just and perfect enumeration and description of all persons resident within my district, and return the same to the President of the United States, agreeably to the directions of an act of Congress, intituled 'An act providing for the enumeration of the inhabitants of the United States,' according to the best of my ability.” The oath or affirmation of an assistant shall be, “I, A. B. do solemnly swear (ör affirm) that I will make a just and perfect enumeration and description of all persons resident within the division assigned to me by the marshal of the district of and make due return thereof to the said marshal, agreeably to the directions of an act of Congress, intituled 'An act providing for the enumeration of the inhabitants of the United States,' according to the best of my ability.” The enumeration shall commence on the first Monday in August next, and shall close within nine calendar months thereafter.
