French, Italian...it's all salad dressing to me

In response to my admitting my error in calling Machiavelli's The Prince "a 16th century French classic," Bob Ingraham writes:
"I prefer to read it in its original German anyway."
Jane Shaffer (whose maiden name is Conger) writes:
"Wally, are you sure the French hadn't overrun Italy at the time ... all those countries were constantly crossing each other's borders. Or maybe it was surreptitiously published in France first. I just can't bring myself to believe that a Conger could make a mistake, so I don't think you did. Your subconscious knew something the rest of us just aren't privy to."
Thanks, guys.
