Bennet Kendrick, his colleague in the ministry, reported to the South Carolina Conference that Nicholas Watters was peculiarly attentive in visiting the sick, and would not let a favorable opportunity slip. He exercised a great degree of humanity in his Christian and ministerial duties. His last words were, "I am not afraid to die, thanks be to God!"
