How would I put a third level quotation?


Would the quotation in this sentence make sense?


John said, "Mary said to Partrick, 'Do you know what Jack said? Well, he said, "I got a new dog!"'"


In the sentence, John is quoted on saying that "Mary said to Patrick" "Do you know what Jack said? Well, he said," (those were Mary's original words) "I got a new dog!" (which are Jack's original words).
