mutt does not show full subject


I use following shell script to send email. But the subject of email always shows "This" instead of "This is L_1.R is finished". You may refer http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/how-to-define-variable-in-%60ssh%60-4175540566/
Code:
host_list=("c15-0330-01.ad.mtu.edu" "c15-0330-02.ad.mtu.edu" "c15-0330-03.ad.mtu.edu" "c15-0330-04.ad.mtu.edu")
program=("L_1" "L_2" "L_3" "L_4")
subject="The job is finished"
ssh -f c15-0330-01.ad.mtu.edu 'echo' "the job ${program[0]} is finished" '|' 'mutt "zwang10@mtu.edu" -s' "This is "${program[0]}".R is finished";

you are nesting double quotes so the "${program[0]}" part is not quoted.
