RIO GRAND REPUBLICAN (A Las Cruces Newspaper): JULY 25, 1885

"Sixteen years ago Leon Trousset, a French artist, who is also something of a
Bohemian, stopped for a while in Las Cruces and painted a picture of the town,
with the Organ mountains for a background. This summer his wandering footsteps
brought him back again and for the second time he reproduced the beautiful view.
Wednesday night this painting was raffled off at the Monarch saloon and Charles
McCarty, of Socorro threw 46, the high dice that won it. The artist is now engaged
on a general view of this place which will also be raffled."
