Dear Wittgenstein experts,
I'm trying to trace a story I've heard of some papers from Wittgenstein discovered in an Irish farmhouse being used by the farmer to mend a hole in the ceiling. Have you ever heard this story?
Very grateful for any leads.
Best
Nicky

@evans58,
I've not heard of that, but I do know that my Grandad used to cut up the News of the World into little squares and hang them on a nail in the toilet at the end of the garden.

Does that help?
