This is a problem known as finding moments of moments. In this case, we seek the covariance (i.e. the $\mu_{1,1}$ central moment) of various sample moments. The modus operandi for solving such problems is to work with power sum notation $s_r$, namely: $$s_r = \sum_{i=1}^n X_i^r$$ In this case, you are interested in the sample mean $ = \frac{s_1}{n}$, and ...
