Keeping in mind that Ralph is only twelve at the beginning of the novel, his letter is going to present a fairly immature interpretation of what has occurred on the island.  He will probably tell his parents that the boys elected him leader,he used a conch shell to call assemblies, and he sought to build shelters and maintain the signal fire.  Of course, his mention of Piggy will be somewhat complimentary, as will that of Simon.  When he mentions Simon, Ralph will explain that Simon seemed confused as he attempts to tell them something about the beast....Of course, Ralph will mention the cruel Jack and the sadistic Roger and blame them for the murders
