Writing to . . . whom?

I believe in addressing as earnestly, and as modestly, and as forthrightly as possible, somebody whom I cannot see, whom I do not know.
Jeff Nunokawa (a literature professor at Princeton who posts daily meditations on Facebook), quoted in Rebecca Mead, One a Day: Earnest, New Yorker, July 4, 2011, at 19, 20.
