What you’ve written is not grammatically valid. You can’t put a Sentence As Object in the middle of a larger sentence. The {-‘e’} always refers back to a preceding sentence, not to an encapsulated one. One is forced to have the {-‘e’} skip back to the previous sentence, not place the previous sentence into the middle of the larger sentence. Like I said, it’s ugly.
