I only found this quite recently in "The Mammoth Book of Men of War", Hornblower's Charitable Offering is set in HMS Sutherland, and is one of many shorts that Forester wrote to pad out the series. The book, which contains stories from many well known writers, and has an intro from Kent, is published by Robinsons, ISBN 1-84119-060-8

I've seen references to this before but never followed it up. I believe this 'short' was also called The Bad Samaritan and was originally intended as a chapter for 'Ship of the Line'.

It also appeared with two other shorts The Hand of Destiny (set in 1796 when he was a Midshipman) and Hornblower and His Majesty (set in 1812 between 'Commodore Hornblower' and 'Lord Hornblower')
in Hornblower - One More Time a rare book which is hard to find.

I think Hornblower and His Majesty can also be found in The Mammoth Book of Hearts of Oak ISBN 1841192791

Another The Point And The Edge set in 1819 was outlined in the Hornblower Companion by C.S. Forester, but never written

From the Enet site operated by C.S. Forester's sons is this compliation of 5 short stories, which they call Book 12. Most (or all) of these stories have appeared elsewhere as individual 'offerings', one of which is offered here as a 'sample':

Yes, that is true. However, neither it nor its Amazon link offers a complete version of any of the 5 stories. Whereas, The Hand of Destiny can be read here in its entirety.
