मैंने पीटर को एक चिट्ठी लिखी थी = I had written a letter to Peter- Past perfect
In certain tenses (like the simple past), transitive verbs (verbs which can take direct objects) agree with the gender/number of their object rather than the subject.
In this sentence, the object of the verb is चिट्ठी which is feminine. So, we use the feminine form of the verb.
