Harry can remove parts if nessesary (please be kind).
First of all look at the group sizes.
You will see that the first block is a different size to the others.
This normally is found at the end (hinting at the text being reversed).
Secondly when you have done the first step try to identify the cipher.
Cribbing is extremely useful.
We know from the hint that it is signed off by Abraham Woodhull so try arrange the letters to keep that at the end of your decrypt.
It should be quite plain sailing from there.
Overall it isn’t double encrypted to the point you expect, it is quite a lot simpler of a first cipher.
