A brief biographical sketch of former superior general William Slattery is combined with letters from two of his successors in office, Richard McCullen and James Richardson. The letters are testimonials to Slattery’s “unconscious holiness,” as well as to his many other virtues. McCullen cites Slattery’s enrichment and preservation of the Vincentian heritage. Richardson writes of how Slattery exemplified what Vincent de Paul desired of confreres in the Common Rules.
