The English were coming here in force by the 1850s. Visitor statistics? No, but sometimes an anecdote does the trick. Here's one: The Reverend James Coley, a chaplain working for the East India Company, visited in 1847 and wrote: "I was struck with surprise at not being asked to take off my boots; I enquired the reason, and the men in charge replied that the Sahib log would not take off their boots, and therefore they had given up asking them." (J. Coley, Journal of the Sutlej Campaign of 1845-6, quoted by Aijazuddin, 1991, p. 38.)
