California Quotes: The Teeth of California

And from parents to children this lamentable condition of those important organs increases as it is entailed, until it has become with many scientific gentlemen a serious questions: "Shall an approaching generation in California be toothless?"

From: California State Agricultural Society Report, 1876, p. 92
