President Adams issued these appointments for the nine districts of Massachusetts just eight days after Congress passed the "Act to provide for the valuation of lands and dwelling houses and the enumeration of slaves within the United States," which created the first federal property tax levied on U.S. citizens. The legislation was passed during the Quasi-War with France and was intended to raise funds to prosecute an actual war should relations with France continue to deteriorate.
