Auf eine Anstellung hoffend, sprach er bei Friedrich dem Großen, Katharina der Großen und beim polnischen König vor. Obgleich diese Vorstöße alle erfolglos endeten, blieben sie nicht folgenlos: Ergebnis seiner missglückten Reise nach Warschau etwa ist eine glänzende Abhandlung über die der Aufteilung Polens vorausgehenden Wirren.
Mit dem Schwinden seiner Aussichten auf eine politische Karriere rückten seine philologischen Interessen in den Vordergrund. Im böhmischen Dux schließlich, wo er seine letzten Lebensjahre als Bibliothekar des Grafen Waldstein verbrachte und seine Lebensgeschichte niederschrieb, widmete er sich dem Verhältnis von Sprache und Politik und rechnete mit der Französischen Revolution ab, die seine Welt zum Einsturz gebracht hatte.
