Advertisement. [heading]

Whereas, during the night between the 7th and 8th instant, ten Portuguese deserters, from Cayenne broke forcibly out and effected their escape from the prison in Fort Zeelandia, by undermining the wall of the same, viz.
Arnoldo Philipo,
Laurenso de Buyro,
Patensiano Martino,
Nicola Joseph Santo,
Joseph Naramo de Santo,
Bento Joseph,
Antonio Nazaro,
Antonia Rodriguez,
Penba Joseph Remanos,
Francsico de Borghes.
And whereas, at the legal inspection of the breach, it appeared, that most likely the said prisoners were aided and assisted in their breaking out and escape by persons outside the prison. And it being of the greatest importance to justice that such crimes should be inquired after, and the perpetrators discovered and punished; as also that the absconded prisoners should be overtaken, and again secured.
The undersigned First Counsellor Fiscal of this Colony, R. O. with the authorisation of the Honourable the Court of Policy and Criminal Justice, does hereby promise a Reward of One Thousand Guilders to whoever can give satisfactory information concerning the said breaking out, and of the persons who are hiding the same, so that they may fall into the hands of justice, and be convicted of the crime; and the name of the informer will, if discovered, be kept secret. And all persons are furthermore warned not to harbour, lodge, or grant a retreat for, any of the above-mentioned escaped persons, much less to assist the same in their flight out of this Colony, upon pain of being most rigorously punished, in conformity to the laws. And, on the other hand, all persons are exhorted and requested, in case of discovery of any of the said deserted prisoners, to detain the same, and deliver them to the Fiscal's Office, for which all expences incurred will be paid; and, moreover, for every one of the said deserters so apprehended and delivered over, a Reward of One Hundred Guilders.
Surinam, December 10, 1811.
