I have taken help from the previous editions; the Gazetteers of the neighbouring districts of Sialkot and Gujrat the Census Report of 1931 the Settlement Reports of the district and the Assessment Reports of the tahsils ; and the Industrial Punjab " by Latin (1911). [...] On the north the district touches the Gujrat district and the Shahpur district on the west the Jhang district on the south the Sheikhpura district and on the east the Sialkot district. [...] Over the whole district the period between the Decline of the. decline of the Mnghal empire on the death of Aurangzeb M. ugh& I om pin and the rise of the Sikh confederacies (roughly the first halt of the 18th century) was one of indescribable confusion and anarchy4. [...] The name of the former is remembered here and elsewhere * and for the justice of his decisions the moderation of his assessment and the wisdom which led him to conciliate and settle in the soil the turbulent and predatory tribes of the BaKharrals Bhagsinkas &c.
