1800's or 1850's or a slavory tag needed, please! =)

Those types of ads could appear in an important section of the newspaper (sometimes including illustrations) or in the classified ads.
I hope this is okay to post.

"RUNAWAY CREOLE .
REWARD.
R$ 50U000


It is still missing, since October 18th, 1854, the creole slave named

FORTUNATO

He is around 20 years of age, lacking front teeth, with a very short beard, short stature, strong, bearing smallpox scars acquired a few years ago. He is lazy, moody, speaks fast looking down to the floor. Sometimes he walks with shoes, and says his name is Fortunato Lopes da Silva. He knows how to cook, how to bind, and has knowledge of plantations, the activity he knows best. If you arrest him, hand him over to the police, and give notice at the court warning the slave's owner Eduardo Laemmert, on Quitanda Street nº 77, and then you will receive the reward of 50U000."
