I certify that the above Census is correct J Alex Kerr Township Assessor.

N.B - Fasten the leaves together at the top, and number the pages. It will then be sufficient for the Assessor to sign his name on the last leaf. (The Assessor is required by law to forward these papers, properly filled up, to the clerk of the Board of School Trustees of his Township. If the number of blank forms sent is not sufficient, add properly ruled pages of foolscap.)
