HI Ahmed_U


found this little snippet regarding being a Corn Factor

the business of a corn factor is perfectly distinct from that of a corn merchant,
because a person who receives consignments, and deals at the same time
on his own account, may not always be inclined to serve his employers with that
impartiality he otherwise would do."

Many thanks, Wendy!

It seems that John Stevenson used to have a corn farm, and that when he became a little older, he became a corn factor. Makes sense to me!

Thank you.
