I am researching the laws of the second day of Yom Tov in Golus. On one occasion, I found the text of the Shulchan Oruch Horav Orach Chaim 496 which states that someone not from Israel who is visiting Israel need keep only one day.

Together with this, I found text which suggested a reason for this relating to the emanation of the Yom Tov which in golus expands into two days.

Now I cannot find these texts.

Where online are the texts to which I refer?

I believe what you are searching for is Shulchan Aruch HaRav, Orach Chaim, volume 4, siman 496, seif 11 and notes 45-46, together with their back reference to note 25 for seif 7.

As requested, links to both locations have been provided.
