Technically you should write the letter before you quit. Just a professional tone to the letter stating your reason for choosing to leave the company. If it was b-cuz you found another job with better hours and/or pay or any other positive reason, they can use that info when figuring out their turnover rate. If it was b-cuz of a negative reason, you will have to decide if it is something that the boss should be aware of or not (like personality conflict with coworker or fear of roaches crawling on your equipment). It also depends on whether or not you care about the boss giving you a good recommendation IF you plan to use him/her as a reference on future job applications.

FIND A NEW JOB FIRST! Write a letter on resignation if you're not comfortable with the face to face thing. Make sure you give at least 2 weeks notice. Your letter should be about two to three short paragraphs. Explain why you are leaving (make it about you, "I need to move on" etc.) Say that you regret having to make the decision but you must. Try to give 2 - 3 GOOD reasons for your decisions. Make sure that you word it politely and present it in a calm and rational manner. And for GOD'S sake, DON'T write it at work.

If you are not happy don't stay there. Don't listen to other people but listen to your heart. I have listened to other people and stayed at a job where I didn't want to be anymore and toughed it out longer than 4 months and when the time was over I was still miserable. Chances are nothing is going to change. I find honesty the best policy. Go and talk with your boss about how you feel. Can you take some time off? That would be the first thing to do. Take some time off, get a break from the place. If things are the same when you come back if you have the same feelings then make sure to give a 2 weeks notice when you leave.

Write A letter and give them a 2 weeks notice . Write down that you appreciate having learned so much while being there and the positive aspects of the job. Tell them for personal reasons you must leave. conclude by thanking them. no matter if the boss was in the wrong you can't change them but you can leave with a good impression and even if they don't like that your leaving they don't have a reason to bad mouth you because you gave notice and did it the right way.

After you send this letter, please keep your eyes open for new opportunities, you don't need to be sucking up to someone for a job, when they are constantly disrespecting you. If you decide to use this letter, feel free to make the appropriate changes as your situation dictates. Good Luck. Dear (Whatever) Please accept my apology for engaging you in debate about our recent project and for whatever inconvenience this may have caused you, but I felt that your instructions differed from what I understood them to be. It seems that our recent conflict was a result of miscommunication; as I am not always aware of changes in instructions. It is certainly not my intention to be confrontational. In the future I will endeavor to notify you if I am unclear as to your initial instructions. Please know that I value our working relationship and hope that it remains intact. Sincerely,

You should just talk to your boss. My former boss hated when people would write him long notes and emails etc... for things they could have told him in 3 seconds. Most of the time I was the one reading them. Just go in, ask for a minute and explain why you have been late and reassure your boss that your tardiness will not be an issue in the future. A letter really isnt necessary.
