I'll start explaining - the answer is at the bottom if you want to just see it.

Actually, it's pretty simple if you've seen one's like this. It's a single
transposition. And this one even has the columns in the proper order.
Note the letter distribution is good and that the capitals seem like
good word starters - that should suggest a transposition. I counted
36 letters and so tried a 6x6 first - like so:


The text is now down columns, which could be in any order, but here they
are in the correct order - left-to-right. And it's a lot easier to read the columns with
a fixed-width font/editor (I used Notepad) than the variable spacing font here.
