Entries indicate that Nott performed a variety of procedures on both white residents and those enslaved by them, including setting broken bones, treating lacerations, lancing abscesses, pulling teeth, letting blood, and administering emetics, cathartics, cough mixtures, blister plasters, and quinine and opium pills.
Numerous visits were made to the Nesbitt Manufacturing Company, an iron-manufacturing facility located near the now abandoned town of Cooperville in present day Cherokee County, S.C., to treat African-American slaves working for the company. Of interest also is an entry, Oct. 1838, recording an account with Governor Pierce Mason Butler that documents Nott's involvement with the South Carolina Jockey Club.
