Hugh McCrae described his daughter's reaction when Norman sent him a print of Debut and went on to describe the emotion it aroused in him:
Smee's delight on my unwrapping Debut ... was so spontaneous on her part as to leave no doubt as to the genuine happiness you had given her ... it is a jolly conception ... the senorita in her absolute beauty, the last of her petals flung open, everything fresh, sweet and resilient ... the headdress as downy as smoke ... the bouquet of blossoms is twice its own weight on account of the dew in the stamens and it mixes its sweetness with the musky odour which distinguishes a satyr even at a distance of fifty yards or more.
