Close, but no cigar.


Indeed the passive for your sentence is "A letter was written to me by him."

You had a subject in your sentecence -who had wrote you a letter, remember? not someone or somebody else but "he"- as you changes the sentence to the passive voice, then "he" is changed to "him"  (the former indirect object now needs a preposition "by" ).

I hope it clears your doubt.
