Galleon

Galleon, anciently, a ship of war of the largest size, with three or four decks of guns; but, in the 18th century, one of the large Spanish merchantmen employed in regular voyages to the Indies and elsewhere, and usually having four decks, and carrying guns. Until after the commencement of the present century the galleons sailed yearly from Cadiz, and were away for about two years. The chief ones brought home the produce of the Potosi silver mines, and also much gold, precious stones, wool, quinine, skins, leather, etc. The number of galleons varied, and was greatest in time of war; but a single one with her cargo was often worth nearly two millions sterling.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39
