I suggest the possibility that the above mentioned "H. Elliot, Major of Engineers - Engineer Secretary"
might be George. H. Elliot as reported, among other online sources, here https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Page:Popular_Science_Monthly_Volume_6.djvu/384.
Therefore the illegible word preceding "H. Elliot" could indeed be his first name "George"


Great find! I would absolutely agree that the above H. Elliot is the same George mentioned in the other document. In the Popular Science article, I love how they describe: "his reasons for advocating these changes seem to be entirely satisfactory."
