In this excerpt from Annus Mirabilis, John Dryden speaks about London after it was ravaged by the Great Fire. Which lines suggest that the city of London is looking ahead with renewed vigor?

I think it was the lines in verse 295.  Despite the massive damage caused by the fire, Dryden is still thankful and optimistic.  London still stood despite what happens because they put out the fire.  Apart from that, King Charles II has plans to rebuild.
