Charles E. Weller used the phrase "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party" as a practice line for training typing skills in 1867. The phrase has been re-used frequently and the ending has often been corrupted to "...the aid of their country."

There is no evidence that this phrase was ever uttered by Patrick Henry, despite occasional apocryphal claims.
