From A Wiki of Ice and Fire
Ser Alliser names which boys have been promoted as men of the Night's Watch, including Jon. All the boys promoted are overjoyed, but Jon notices Sam’s worried look. Jon realizes that with himself, Pyp, and Grenn gone, no one will protect Sam. Jon decides to visit Maester Aemon despite the late hour. The Maester agrees to listen to him, and Jon persuades him by recalling Maester Luwin’s words that civilization needs men of all walks of life and all skills in order to function. Aemon is impressed by Jon’s words, and promises to consider passing Sam into service as a steward to help the maester, since Sam is well read.
